EMIGRA team members gather at Biosphere 2 in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains, near Tucson, Arizona.
2023 EMIGRA All-team Meeting
Early in 2023, Emigra researchers from four countries gathered at Biosphere 2 for an all-team meeting. Of the 35 attending, 12 were from our student research team.
Day one for the students was an all-day science communication training workshop. Three groups of students rotated through three two-hour training sessions with experts in science journalism, science communication in social media, and presentation/performance skills.
For the previous 6 months, the student researchers had worked on building a substantial database of information on 1,000 N American migratory species. While the students participated in the workshop, the rest of the team started work on methods for using these data to create a final list of 30-40 species.
