Calen Wong


Calen Wong is the third (and probably final) student to work on our road ecology project at White Lake, South Okanagan.   The rattlesnakes at this location have been continuously monitored since 2015 with a focus on assessing and mitigating the impact of road mortality on the population.  Stephanie Winton established the project, Jade Spruyt monitored the snakes immediately after road underpassages were built, and now Calen is documenting the longer-term response of the population.  His study includes surveys for road deaths and mark/recapture work at the dens to quantify population changes.
