Congratulations to Emeritus Professor of Wildlife Biology Dale McCullough, who was recently awarded the Aldo Leopold Memorial Award by The Wildlife Society (TWS). Bestowed in recognition of an individual's distinguished service to wildlife conservation, the award is the highest honor a TWS member can achieve.
McCullough's recent research projects have focused on the booms and busts of kangaroo populations in outback Australia, the sika deer in its native range of Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, China, and far eastern Russia, and the Amur leopard in Russia.
“I especially appreciate this award because of my past connection with the Leopold family,” said McCullough, who studied under Starker Leopold, Aldo’s oldest son. “Having that exposure from the start was very important to my career.”
