More about featured speaker, Heidi Ross:

Originally from northern Wisconsin, Heidi Ross has lived in Panama for 23 years. She is the project director of the ex situ amphibian conservation project with the EVACC Foundation located in central Panama. EVACC has worked with more than 60 different amphibian species over the years, directly focused on 10 critically endangered species. Their lab space is directly inside the historical range of the Panamanian golden frog, making them uniquely connected to ecosystem and weather changes. Ross oversees all the invertebrate production for food and population genetics for the frogs, and attends to the day-to-day needs of both the frogs and insects.
