Matthew Kauffman, Professor of Zoology and Physiology at University of Wyoming, presented Pilgrimage to Yellowstone: Sacred and Secular Interpretations of Nature to lifelong-learners during the Fall Saturday U. The event took place at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, WY on October 11, 2014.
Matthew Kauffman leads a scientific team that has broken new ground exploring the long-distance migrations of Wyoming's iconic large ungulates like deer and elk. Their research seeks to understand how and why ungulates migrate by evaluating the role of forage, movement, fat dynamics, reproduction and survival. His talk will explore how migrations are being altered by landscape changes such as drought, predation by newly restored wolves and grizzly, and rapidly expanding energy development as well as new efforts to conserve the migration routes.
