The Beaver State Podcast Episode 74: The science of elk

November 5, 2021

DeWaine Jackson has researched a lot of Oregon's wildlife over the course of his career with ODFW. It's a different role than that of a district wildlife biologist, but the information he provides helps everyone understand the complex population dynamics so that they can make decisions that will help protect and preserve wildlife. Elk might be the most charismatic megafauna in the state, and Jackson's research is now using new techniques and technology to study fecal DNA to answer important questions about elk populations.
