Chris Merkord Posted April 13, 2013 Share Posted April 13, 2013 Dave Kraus, Betty Learmouth, Dr. Dan Krutsch, Dan Mennill The Essex Region Conservation Authority recognized four new Conservation Champions as part of its initiative to honour 40 individuals during its 40th year of conservation. Professor Dr. Dan Mennill, educator Dave Kraus, engineer Dan Krutsch and Betty Learmouth – environmental educator, volunteer and activist, were all honoured. Dr. Dan Mennill is a professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Windsor who inspires professors, students and the community to work together to research and protect the many incredible bird species of our region and beyond. A conservation biologist, Dan has conducted research on endangered bird species in Central and South America, and his work has led to significant insight into the birds that live in the Neotropical Dry Forest, the most endangered ecosystem in the tropics. Locally, Dan and his students have developed a project that uses acoustic surveys to monitor the migratory behaviour of birds in Essex County. “Dan loves to teach about ornithology and animal behaviour and he has earned many teaching accolades, including awards for the top teacher in the Faculty of Science and in the University as a whole,” said ERCA Chair Joe Bachetti.
