Women Out Loud: Tack lecture excerpt
Anne Rasmussen delivers the Fall 2018 Tack Faculty Lecture at William & Mary.
First there was the Griffin. Now, we have toads wearing backpacks.
The toads are located by the transponder inserted into the little backpack/fanny pack/cummerbund that doesn’t inhibit the toad’s movement or harm the animal. The tracker has to get within 10 to 15 meters to pick up the signal. Photo by Stephen Salpukas William & Mary
W&M student Olivia Windorf listens for a signal relayed from the transponder-toting toad. Her apparatus can detect toads a meter or so underground.
