University of Maryland and Smithsonian’s National Zoo
Megan Brown is a Doctoral Student at University of Maryland working with Avian Reproductive Biology focusing primarily on the Whooping Crane. Brown completed her Master’s degree at the same university and received her Bachelor’s degree from Delaware Valley College in 2010 with a degree in Zoo Science. Currently she is working at Patuxent Wildlife Research Center in Maryland as a volunteer helping to raise Whooping Crane Chicks for release. Brown hopes that after completing her PhD she will continue to work in the zoo community with endangered bird species, focusing on captive management and reproduction.
