Dr. Frank provides support for wildlife programs in Districts 6, 10, and 12.  The broad goal of her work is to increase human connections to the natural environment through experiences with wildlife.  Dr. Frank’s outreach efforts focus on improving ecological literacy and fostering connections to local wildlife in both urban and rural settings.  Currently, she is helping develop a youth birding program in West Texas to make birding a more accessible hobby to youth.  Dr. Frank seeks to improve understanding between traditional and modern, consumptive and non-consumptive uses of wildlife, and to share science-based solutions to today’s wildlife management challenges.
