BCI Welcomes Dr. Winifred Frick
We are pleased to welcome Winifred Frick, Ph.D., to the BCI team as our new Senior Director of Conservation Science. Frick will oversee the organization’s conservation-related science programs and will help advance BCI’s relationships with its research partners.
“I am delighted to join BCI, an organization that aims to combine scientific analysis with on-the-ground conservation actions,” said Frick. “I am excited to join the conservation team at BCI to help protect the world’s many bat species.”
Frick, who earned a Ph.D. at Oregon State University, is internationally renowned for her research on the disease ecology and impacts of White-nose Syndrome, a fungal disease that has killed over six million bats in North America. She joins BCI from her previous role as an adjunct assistant professor in ecology and evolutionary biology at University of California, Santa Cruz. She also worked extensively in northwestern Mexico on the seasonal ecology and foraging behavior of nectar-feeding bats.
