Grad student speaks about research on Falkland Islands Television

Kit Hamley, a graduate student at the University of Maine’s Climate Change Institute, was a recent guest on Falkland Islands Television. She spoke about her research on an extinct species of fox called the warrah. Using field and laboratory techniques, Hamley hopes to learn how and when the animal arrived in the Falklands. “It’s been fantastic, it’s been really amazing,” Hamley said about her time on the islands. While there, Hamley has been connecting with K–12 students in Maine and around the country through UMaine Extension’s Follow a Researcher® program. Educators and students have been able to communicate with Hamley through live Twitter chats during her expedition, as well as classroom visits before and after her trip.
