month's speaker is Mike Mills. He is a
wildlife biology technician in the Wildlife & Habitat Management Program at
the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF). Originally from St. Louis,
Missouri, he graduated with a Wildlife Biology degree from Southeast Missouri
State University. Since graduation, he has traveled around the world working
various wildlife related jobs with a number of species. One of these jobs
required using radio-telemetry tracking King Cobras
in the jungles of Thailand. He worked and lived in Thailand for 6 months
tracking and studying these magnificent animals and would like to share his
experience with you!
Come learn about the behavior and ecology of the world’s largest venomous
snake! Also included in the presentation will be information on
radio-telemetry, how it is used in wildlife studies around the world and how it
was specifically used in this study. He will also share information about the
habitats of Thailand and the culture in general. Hope to see you all there!
