Hey SAFS community!
Just imagine for a minute if all the stories from around the world about what connected rivers mean for fish and people were collected in one place…well, the FEC lab is partnering with Society for Conservation Biology and World Fish Migration Foundation on an ambitious project for the upcoming World Fish Migration Day to do that, and are asking for help/stories/social media love – whatever you’ve got!
SAFS is pleased and excited to announce that Samantha Murphy and Griffin Hoins, both undergraduate SAFS majors, were selected to receive a 2016 Bonderman Fellowship.
From the UW Bonderman webpage:
Fifteen University of Washington students were recently awarded Bonderman Travel Fellowships that will enable them to embark on solo journeys that are at least eight months long and take them to at least two regions and six countries of the world.

SAFS grad student Margaret Siple is featured in UW Today:

It’s this mindset that resource managers should adopt when considering Pacific herring, one of the most ecologically significant fish in Puget Sound and along the entire West Coast, argue the authors of a paper appearing in the January 2016 print edition of the journal Oecologia.
In accordance with our (hopefully) constant efforts to improve the representation and experience of traditionally underrepresented groups in academia and the sciences, I’d like to invite any interested student (undergrad or grad), faculty or staff to a meeting to discuss the potential role of an organization for LGBTQ+ people in the Earth/environmental sciences here at UW. My goal is to get a regular group going at some point, and the purpose of this meeting would be to start defining what work needs to be done and how such an organization could be useful and effective.
