Brown Bag Lecture: Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD)

12:00 pm — 1:00 pm

Sibley's next Brown Bag Lecture will be on CWD presented by Ernesto Garcia-Ortega, the region's Wildlife Biologist for TPWD.

I was born and raised in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico. Since I was child, I developed an interest and love for the outdoor activities, spending most of my vacations working cattle at my grandfather’s ranch and enjoying the beauty of nature. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Environmental and Safety Engineering at the Universidad Autónoma de Tamaulipas, in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico in 2012.

In 2017, I completed my master’s degree in range and wildlife management at the Sul Ross State University-Borderlands Research Institute in Alpine, TX. As graduate research assistant, I investigated and monitored the selection of artificial resources and dispersal movements of radio-collared scaled quail females in the Trans-Pecos region. Additionally, I worked as chronic wasting disease (CWD) seasonal technician for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in Van Horn, TX and more recently, hired as a regulatory wildlife biologist for Midland, Ector, Upton, Crane, Winkler, Ward and Loving counties within the same department.
