Brad Timm, PhD student in wildlife and fisheries conservation, has just been awarded the Robert and Patricia Switzer Foundation Fellowship. "The programs of the Robert and Patricia Switzer Foundation are dedicated to investing in individual leaders who will be driving positive environmental change and to supporting projects that will have measurable positive results on environmental quality for natural and human communities. The goal of the Switzer Environmental Fellowship Program is to support highly talented graduate students in New England and California whose studies are directed toward improving environmental quality and who demonstrate the potential for leadership in their field."

Brad Timm’s current research is focused on ecology and conservation of the Eastern spadefoot toad (Scaphiopus h. holbrookii) at Cape Cod National Seashore.
