Research Scientist Sarah Faegre receives award from San Diego Zoo to study Åga (Mariana crow) population

Research Scientist Sarah K. Faegre received a $60,021 subaward from the Zoological Society of San Diego (San Diego Zoo). The award is for work titled “Rear and Release Population Augmentation of the Åga or Mariana Crow.” This project continues research on survival of an endangered species, including artificial incubation and hand rearing, native foraging and pre-release antipredator training, sampling to monitor for disease in hand-reared birds, and investigation of factors leading to nesting failure of wild and captive-reared birds using nest monitoring cameras.
