This webinar's speaker is Dr. Sara Wyckoff, with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Dr. Wyckoff was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ where she received her Bachelors degree in Biology from ASU and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree from Midwestern University. She has been fascinated with wildlife since she was a child and grew up reading books about animals and watching Steve Irwin and Jeff Corwin. She started volunteering at a wildlife rehabilitation center in 2010 where she learned about wildlife veterinary medicine and became determined to become a state wildlife veterinarian. After vet school she did two internships and then worked for a wildlife hospital out in Arizona. She has collaborated with Arizona Game and Fish on elk relocation projects and pronghorn captures. She has also assisted in research projects studying Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) antemortem testing and genetics in Colorado elk. She joined the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in May 2022 as a Wildlife Veterinarian, and she look forward to helping Texas wildlife stay safe and healthy.
