WAUKESHA, WIS.— Two Carroll University biology students have had their animal behavior research published in “Animal Keeper’s Forum,” the journal of the American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK).
“Courtship, Nesting and Aggression in Gentoo Penguins at the Milwaukee County Zoo” was written by Jacqueline Hulina and Morgan Lauf, and their faculty adviser, Dr. Susan Lewis, professor of biology and marine biology. It is based on research the students did on the behavior of penguins during their mating periods at the Milwaukee County Zoo. The research was part of the students’ work in a behavioral ecology class at Carroll.
Their article was also the feature of the month for April on AAZK’s website http://aazk.org/category/akf/article/
Hulina, a senior from Addison, Ill., has been accepted to the doctorate program in Fish and Wildlife Management at Michigan State University. She plans to study endangered or threatened species to further conservation goals. “I would like to pass on my knowledge of wildlife ecology and management as a professor at a major university,” she said.
A story about Hulina also was recently posted on dugdug.com, a price comparison shopping website for pet owners, as part of its Future of Veterinary Care series.
Lauf, a 2012 Carroll graduate from Pleasant Prairie, Wis., is doing an internship as a conservation education presenter at Disney Animal Kingdom in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
Carroll’s undergraduate major in animal behavior is one of just 10 such programs in the country.
