Bryan Bedrosian

   Biography

Bryan has been studying raptor species in and around Wyoming since 2001. He obtained his undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point and Master's degree from Arkansas State University. His main research interests are migration ecology, movement, toxicology, and telemetry technology in raptors and corvids. He also is founder and owner of Trapping Innovations, producing net launchers for researchers and has been developing new telemetry equipment.
