Oikonos Ecosystem Knowledge has promoted Ryan Carle to a new position of Conservation Training and Development Manager.  In this new position, Ryan will oversee Oikonos's conservation work in Chile on a threatened seabird species, the Pink Footed Shearwater.  Ryan has worked as a biologist with Oikonos for several years before and during his master's degree at UC Santa Cruz.  In his new position, he will be responsible for overseeing Oikonos's on-the-ground conservation efforts in Chile's Juan Fernandez archipelago.  Specifically, Ryan will train Chilean colleagues in data organization and analysis, co-author a peer-reviewed scientific paper on the status of the Pink Footed Shearwater, draft a feasibility and scoping plan for habitat restoration, and track breeding birds.  This new position will allow Ryan to utilize his existing skills as a wildlife biologist while also moving him into a supervisory and planning role within the organization.
