WRA Salt Marsh Harvest Mouse Expert to Present at the 2018 Bay-Delta Science Conference

Members of WRA’s wildlife and fisheries team including Daniel Chase, Katie Smith, and Stewart Desmeules will attend the Bay-Delta Science Conference being held September 10-12, 2018 in Sacramento. This year’s event will convene a community of scientists, practitioners, resource agency staff, and other stakeholders working on Bay-Delta issues through a theme of “Our Estuary at an Intersection”.

WRA biologist Katie Smith will give a presentation as part of the event’s Climate Change Session on September 10th at 1:55 pm. Her talk, The State of the Mouse: Conserving SMHM in Our Modern and Changing Estuary, is based on research published in the August 2018 San Francisco Estuary and Watershed Science journal (Towards Salt Marsh Harvest Mouse Recovery: Research Priorities and Towards Salt Marsh Harvest Mouse Recovery: A Review) from her work at the University of California, Davis on the recovery needs for the state and federally-listed salt marsh harvest mouse.
