The 9th Biennial Hellbender Symposium held in Blacksburg (June 17-20) was a huge success!! With support from the Fralin Life Science Institute, the Virginia Dept. of Game and Inland Fisheries, and several other contributors, Virginia Tech hosted ~90 people from academia, zoos/aquaria, NGOs, and state and federal agencies. Scientists from as far away as Japan were in attendance. Hopkins lab members Clara Frazier, Thomas Galligan, Sky Button, Brian Case, Jordy Groffen, Becca O’Brien, and Arden Blumenthal all presented their research at the symposium and did a great job. Congrats!! Click here for more details and here to see photos of this great event. Big shout out to Jess Zielske and the Hopkins’ lab members for hosting a great event!
