On September 15, 2020, ASU Center for Biodiversity Outcomes Graduate Research Assistant Katie Surrey-Bergman and Assistant Research Professor Gwen Iacona, both from the School of Life Sciences, presented a panel facilitated a workshop titled “Collecting and Reporting on the Costs of Compliance with the Endangered Species Act” in partnership with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).

This panel, presented alongside EPRI’s Senior Technical Leader Becca Madsen and Technical Executive Christian Newman, was part of the 110th Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies Virtual Annual Meeting.

This workshop offered attendees of all levels the ability and materials to design, collect and report on cost data in conservation sciences. The workshop was attended by conservation scientists and practitioners interested in minimizing cost hindrances and maximizing efficiency in research.
