Anna Skurikhina

Anna hails from Russia, and is currently a senior undergraduate student completing her honours degree in the Department of Natural Resource Sciences  at TRU.  During the summer of 2017, Anna worked with Dana Eye to conduct the first telemetry field study of female rattlesnakes in British Columbia.  In particular, she is focusing on the snakes’ behaviour prior, during and after parturition, and the selection of specific ‘rookery’ sites where birthing takes place.
