Our speaker will be Todd Merendino. His presentation will be “Ducks Unlimited Conservation Efforts in Texas”
Todd Merendino grew up in the rice fields and marshes of southeast Texas (graduating from Hardin-Jefferson High School) and has enjoyed the opportunity to get paid to "play" in the mud and water as his dad likes to say. Todd has a B.S. in Wildlife Management and an M.S. in Wildlife Science from Texas Tech University, and a Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of Western Ontario.
In pursuit of his formal education and during his employment, Todd has been able to work in the waterfowl wintering grounds of Texas, the breeding grounds of Canada's prairie pothole region, and the farmlands and boreal forest areas of Central Ontario. Todd is currently the Manager of Conservation Programs for Ducks Unlimited in Texas and oversees DU's conservation efforts on private lands and public lands in Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico.
Todd previously worked with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department as a project leader of the Central Coast Wetlands Ecosystem Project, and oversaw habitat management, research, and public hunting activities on state-owned Wildlife Management Areas along middle Texas Coast.
