Matt Strausser



Matt is a tracking intern for the
International Crane Foundation (ICF). He uses radio telemetry to track Whooping cranes in Florida, Wisconsin, and everywhere in between. After graduating from Cal Berkeley in December 2009 with degrees in Integrative Biology and Forestry and Natural Resource Management, Matt began working for ICF in the following month. Although 2010 is his first year working with Whooping cranes, Matt is no stranger to endangered species. Matt has used radio telemetry to help in the recovery efforts of other endangered species including Tule Elk in California and Attwater’s Prairie Chickens in Texas.

Journey North is pleased to feature this educational adventure made possible by the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP).
