School: Tuskegee University Major: Animal, Poultry, and Veterinary Science Site: Yosemite National Park
My name is Jonathan D Owens; also known as Jon or JD. I’m from a small town in Florida by the name of Stuart, Fl. I graduated from Florida A&M University in the spring of 2015 with a B.S. in Animal Science. Currently, I’m enrolled at Tuskegee University pursing a M.S. in Animal, Poultry, and Veterinary Science. At Tuskegee University, I’m researching disease prevalence in feral swine. I’m an active participant in the Graduate Student Association and MANRRS. I’ve grown quite the interest in wildlife veterinary medicine and conservation. I’m looking forward to learning more about wildlife conservation and new techniques to perfect my craft with the help of HBCUI and associates. This summer, I want to explore and experience what Yosemite National Park has to offer; along with California.
