Are you interested in wildlife health and willing to share your thoughts?

Hi, I'm a Ph.D. student in fisheries & wildlife at Michigan State University looking at human dimensions of wildlife health and disease. I'm holding a focus group (essentially, a small group round table interview -- very casual) in Portland on June 17th and am looking for about 8 participants. Pizza and refreshments and $10 gift cards will be provided to those who attend.

I'm looking for people who are interested in wildlife but aren't experts (e.g., don't work as a wildlife professional). No special knowledge is needed...just enough of an opinion to contribute and a willingness to share your thoughts openly.

If you can help me out or if I can answer any questions, please contact me at [email protected]

Thanks, in advance, for your consideration!
