The 2023 Fall Seminar Series will feature Dr. Cali Crampton, Program Manager at the Kaua‘i Forest Bird Recovery Project. Crampton will give a talk titled, “Resisting extinction – Ensuring the survival of Kaua‘i’s native forest birds” on Tuesday, Sept. 19, at 3:30 p.m. in Room 2217 of the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment Building located at 602 Duncan Drive, Auburn, AL.
Dr. Crampton is hosted by Dr. Jean Fantle-Lepczyk, assistant research professor of wildlife in the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment. Dr. Crampton will provide an overview of the evolution and ecology of Hawai‘i’s forest birds, outline the causes leading to the current extinction crisis in Hawai‘i, and discuss the research and conservation measures being employed to address this crisis.
Dr. Crampton has been the Program Manager at the Kaua‘i Forest Bird Recovery Project since April 2010, where she oversees research and conservation projects to benefit Kauai’s forest birds. She obtained her Ph.D. in Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology from the University of Nevada at Reno in December 2004. Dr. Crampton has extensive experience coordinating all stages of large research and monitoring projects with teams of diverse stakeholders to help conserve a variety of terrestrial taxa, including bats in Alberta’s aspen forests, phainopepla and other desert species in remnant desert woodlands in southern Nevada, and the endangered Laysan teal in the Pacific.
