New genetic data on Red Siskin populations in captivity and in the wild was received in August. Karen Holm,DVM, a George Mason University (GMU) PhD student is leading the analysis of these data as part of an internship at SNZP&CBI, co-supervised by Kate Rodriguez-Clark and Dr. HC Lim,Karen’s primary supervisor at GMW. These data will inform management of both captive and wild populations, allowing us to avoid inbreeding and promote the maintenance of genetic diversity.
