Viewing of the APT series episode on “Wildlife”

May 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Scientists remove Eastern indigo snake from a trap as students look on

APT films Auburn students looking on as researchers remove the threatened Eastern indigo snake from a trap during a monitoring exercise in the Conecuh National Forest. Auburn University scientists, Jimmy and Sierra Stiles, monitor the snakes as part of a multi-agency reintroduction effort that released 26 Eastern indigo snakes into the Conecuh National Forest in July 2017.

As part of Alabama Public Television’s ongoing “Spotlight on Agriculture” documentary series, the network will air  “Wildlife” on Monday, May 6, at 9 p.m. C.T. “Wildlife” is the second episode in a trilogy series focused on Auburn University School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences research and the importance of forestry, wildlife and natural resources to the state’s economy and quality of life.

Through a series of interviews, the “Wildlife” episode will examine Auburn University’s wildlife research and partnerships with landowners, agencies and other stakeholders to aid the development of policies that will assure healthy and sustainable game and non-game wildlife populations and their habitats.

The episode will also discuss the complex relationships between land use, climate change and population growth that alter the health-related interactions among people, animals and the environment that contribute to the presence of diseases such as rabies, Lyme disease and the West Nile and Zika viruses.

The final episode in the trilogy “Environment and Society,” anticipated to air later this year, will discuss Auburn’s research to examine the relationships between humans and the environment as they relate to economics, policies and other organizational aspects of society.

SFWS faculty, staff and students are invited to view the episode during their lunch period on Monday at noon in the Dixon Executive Conference Room.
