BRI in the News

BRI news stories have appeared in many regional, national, and international news outlets. These stories help promote awareness of our work, but also promote the general issues of conservation biology and the need to continue research in wildlife health and its implications to human health.

BRI's researchers are available to talk to journalists and provide expert information on both their work and the broader topics of their expertise.

Two BRI Articles Featured in Wildlife Magazine, Paws Trails Explorers

Two articles authored by BRI are featured in the current edition of Paws Trails Explorers, an international wildlife and conservation-focused magazine. The April/May 2019 issue is a special Women's Edition, and features articles from BRI's Kate Taylor and Deborah McKew.

Taylor's article, A Seasonal Journey with the Common Loon, details her experience working with loons in the wild, and offers a species account accompanied by stunning photographs by collaborators Daniel and Ginger Poleschook.

McKew's article, Linking Science and Art: A Creative Partnership to Inspire Conservation, tells the story of artists Linda Mirabile and Adelaide Tyrol as they have been inspired by wildlife research and in turn, they hope to inspire conservation through their art. The article showcases many pieces of artwork included in the A Critical Balance exhibit, on display at the Portland Public Library's Lewis Gallery, Portland, ME, April 5 - May 25, 2019.
