Meeting Program – The Impact of Road Mortality on Wildlife by Dr. Bill Langley
November 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
We have all seen dead animals along the road and wondered how often did this occur? My study described the road mortality for amphibians, reptiles, small mammals and birds along Highway K254 over a two-year period. A total of 88 species comprised the 4484 individuals found during this study. Hear about what I found and its importance.
Bill has lived in in El Dorado or Wichita for the past 42 years. He retired from Butler Community College after 30 years teaching biology. As a biologist, he has wide range of interests resulting in studies on grasshopper mice, crows, raptors, mussels, 17-year cicada and other wildlife projects. Even though he has intermittently been active in WAS, his greatest joy was offering a class for beginning birders years ago and many of those individuals becoming members of WAS.
