Wetland Construction; Ranid Reintroduction Working Group Meeting
The 2009 meeting was held at the Oregon Zoo in Portland, Oregon, and focused on wetland construction with a keynote address by Thomas Biebighauser, a biologist and wetland expert with the U.S. Forest Service. Andrew Blaustein of Oregon State University also provided a keynote address. The remainder of the day was spent on a ranid reintroduction working group meeting and the task teams’ discussion (from topics and breakout sessions that were formed during the 2008 meeting). In the evening, participants went on a tour of the zoo and saw a behind the scenes view of the herpetological captive breeding program.
