The PI-CASC Student Research Symposium was held on April 5, 2022, in Guam during the 13th UOG Conference on Island Sustainability.
Our May “Slice of PI-CASC” seminar will be presented by Dr. Lucas Fortini (USGS) and Dr. Scott Fretz (DLNR) who will discuss efforts to improve planning to preserve rare native species threatened by climate change and other factors.
