Smithsonian National Zoological Park (NZP)┬áintern Esther Tsai at the National Zoo’s Conservation Biology Institute

This past fall Smithsonian National Zoological Park (NZP) intern Esther Tsai studied bird migration by mapping bird stopover habitat around the Great Lakes. Her research led her to analyze the different impacts of migration, such as the spread of plant seeds and disease.

Esther recently wrote an article about her experience on the National Zoo’s website. If you’d like, you can check out the article here.
