Call for Abstract is OPEN for #IUWC2019. IUWC is welcoming abstracts for both traditional hypothesis driven research and practical case studies of management, education, and community engagement. This week IUWC is highlighting Dr. Karen Fisher Favret from Montreal, Canada. Karen is a Wildlife Acoustics Scientific Product Grant (Wildlife Acoustics, Inc.) recipient. She introduced elementary school students to soundscape ecology and the concept of Citizen Science. Her project even adventured to Arctic☃️.

IUWC offers international travel awards to bring scholars from different continents together to discuss biology, conservation, and management of urban wildlife. At IUWC 2017, we were fortunate to have colleagues from Australia 🇦🇺️ to present the behavioral changes of eastern grey kangaroos (Macropus giganteus) . More information about these animals can be found at https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jai_Green-Barber2/publications

To celebrate #BatWeek, IUWC would like to highlight its 2017 attendee, Miguel Ordeñana from Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. Mr. Ordeñana received an award from Wildlife Acoustics Scientific Product Grant (Wildlife Acoustics, Inc.)and started a large scale urban bat ecology study.

Are you a student planning to attend IUWC 2019 in Portland to present your research? IUWC offers student travel awards for selected presenters. Sarah A. Schimpp from the University of North Carolina Greensboro was one of the 2017 awardees. She presented her research on urbanization and ecological niche partitioning in San Diego. Later Sarah published her research on Urban Ecosystems: https://doi.org/10.1007/s11252-018-0737-y

Bats are common dwellers in urban areas. Facing many threats such as white-nose syndrome and wind turbine collision, can bats survive cities? Biologists from Lincoln Park Zoo presented their bat monitoring effort at IUWC 2017. They summarized their findings into the publication linked to guide efficient and effective bat monitoring and conservation in urban environments. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/cobi.13047

Starting from this week, we will highlight some presentations from IUWC 2017 in San Diego. Our first throwback Thursday is from IUWC 2019 local host Leslie Bliss-Ketchum. At IUWC 2017, Leslie presented the Metro Habitat Connectivity Toolkit that used a surrogate species approach to combine field sampling and GIS analysis for measuring up-to-date habitat connectivity in the city. Since then this project has progressed to play a major role in the objectives of the Regional Connectivity Working Group’s strategic action plan. You can learn more about these and other great updates at the coming 2019 IUWC in Portland.

Sharing spaces with Madison’s urban wildlife - The Daily Cardinal

Check out this nice piece on the working group's own David Drake who has been studying how coyote and red fox populations interact with each other, as well as humans and urban landscapes in Madison WI.

It’s a little past 6:45 in the morning when David Drake pulls his truck up the hill into Owen Park, on Madison’s near west side.

On the road again: does transportation infrastructure provide habitat and movement corridors for insects?

There is so much for us still to learn about invertebrates and transportation networks! Check out this great summary of new research by conservationcorridor.org

Human-made transportation systems such as roads, railways, and canals are found almost everywhere on Earth, allowing faster and easier movement of people, goods, and services than at any other time in history. This transportation infrastructure is critical to our modern way of life, yet may also hav...

Urban riparian corridors spread both native and non-native plant species

Check out this summary and link to a new paper on plant connectivity in urban riparian networks!

Waterways are key to maintaining connectivity for many species. This is especially true in urban areas, where they may represent the only remaining continuous green space. While they often connect native species that might otherwise disappear, they can just as easily act as

University of Maryland Urban Wildlife Crew!!! Stellar conference!!!
It has been recommended by the California director of the National Wildlife Federation that I submit a proposal to speak at the 2019 conference, but I don't know where to submit it. The link I was given does not include submissions/proposals.
