CHAMPAIGN, Ill.—ERDC Construction Engineering Research Laboratory’s (CERL) David Delaney was recently selected by the graduate selection committee at New Mexico State University (NMSU) to an adjunct faculty position.
NMSU is a comprehensive research, land-grant university excelling in teaching, research and public service that fuels the economy and prepares students to be productive citizens.
Delaney and NMSU faculty have been in collaboration, through the university’s cooperative extension program, on proposals for future research opportunities involving the endangered Sonoran Pronghorn.
There is concern about the potential impact of military training and U.S./Mexico border activities on the long-term persistence of this species.
Currently, federal and state organizations to include the Army National Guard, Air Force, Marine Corps, Arizona Game and Fish Department and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are working to conserve the remaining subpopulation of the Sonoran Pronghorn, which is found primarily on the Barry M. Goldwater Range in southwestern Arizona.
