Dr. Flint Awarded Contract to Research Alligator Breeding

Jaylene Flint, PhD, Assistant Professor in Veterinary Preventive Medicine, was recently awarded a $70,746 industry-sponsored contract to determine the baseline biological parameters which affect breeding of American alligators in situ. Identification of these parameters will enable a welfare orientated in situ American alligator breeding program to be established in the southern United States that is economically viable and augments the current conservation and management of wild populations of this once-endangered species. Dr. Mark Flint, Assistant Professor in Veterinary Preventive Medicine, is a co-investigator on this study.
