2004 DCCL Scholarship Spotlight
Barbara Heindl, received the award in 2004 as a West High (Madison) graduate. She initially attended UW-Stevens Point and then transferred to the UW-Madison where she graduated in 2009 with degrees in Wildlife Ecology (Ag School) and the Biological aspects of Conservation (L&S). She initially spent 6-months with the US Forest Service doing bird and vegetation surveys in New Mexico. She had previously done work for the USGS in Alaska and the International Crane Foundation.
For the past 3 years, she has been in Hawaii (tough job, but someone has to do it) with the Kauai Forest Bird Recovery Project. See: http://kauaiforestbirds.org/ She is their head field tech and does her research in the Alakai Swamp just short of the summit of the extinct volcano. She is one of a handful of individuals who are expert on the Puaioho (Small Kauai Thrush), one of the most endangered birds on the planet.
This is a feature that the UW Ag school just did in their quarterly magazine, Grow. See: http://grow.cals.wisc.edu/environment/catch-up-with-barbara-heindl
