The field work for this important study was completed by BPBO migration monitoring volunteer Glenn Reed, during his stay at the Cabot Head Research Station in the fall of 2009. Glenn has had a life-long interest in snakes, and during a previous stay at the CHRS, he had been shocked by the number of road kill snakes he had seen in the area. Glenn decided to undertake a rigorously scientific study of road kills that fall. During the winter, he, along with Theresa MacKenzie, wrote the study, which was published in March of 2010.
BPBO is proud to have had Glenn as both a migration monitoring volunteer and as a visiting scientist.
