Wildlife Society Students Place Second at National Quiz Bowl, Maine Edge Reports

The Maine Edge published a University of Maine article about members of UMaine’s Student Chapter of The Wildlife Society finishing second among 22 teams from the United States and Canada at The Wildlife Society’s 2014 National Quiz Bowl at the society’s annual conference in Pennsylvania. Undergraduates Marie Martin, Abigail Feuka, Caitlin Gunn, James Petersen and Karla Boyd proved their expertise during a six-hour Jeopardy!-like competition. Team captain Martin said the squad’s composure and runner-up finish indicates the quality of the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Conservation Biology that rewards naturally curious individuals. “It is because of our natural propensity towards that information that we were so successful,” she said.
