In June, CEMML biologist Chris Melder was featured in Thrive Magazine. The “cool jobs” article highlighted Melder’s work involving the conservation of endangered species including the Red-cockaded Woodpecker and the Louisiana Pine Snake. Based at Fort Johnson (formerly Fort Polk) in west-central Louisiana, part of Melder’s role entails education and outreach in the community, including local schools.
