NSERC Science Exposed - Public voting now open

June 10, 2016

Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC)'s Science Exposed competition is a image contest where researchers from an array of disciplines capture images which represent their work.  

This year, Simon Octavio Valdez Juarez (SFU) is one of the finalists in the competition and he needs your vote!  His picture is number 11 in the image gallery.  It is a picture of a tiny, nine gram yellow warbler bird migrated from Canada to Mexico four times, an impressive 30,000 km of travel!  This bird is one of 200 being studied to understand how agriculture affects the ecology and survival of migratory birds.

To vote for Simon, go to NSERC Science Exposed website and click on number 11.
