Lauren Austin

Lauren Austin with Northern Yellow Bat (Lasiurus intermedius)


My research experience includes a visit to Kruger National Park, South Africa where I assisted in researching the parasite competition within African buffalo. I have also assisted in researching the roosting and foraging habitat of Northern Yellow Bats on Little St. Simon’s Island. After I completed that job, the island rehired me a shorebird technician. I monitored American Oystercatchers, Least Terns, and Wilson's Plovers and assisted with various shorebird surveys.
