About Liba Pejchar
Liba is an assistant professor in the Department of Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Biology at CSU whose research focuses on “win-win” opportunities for biodiversity and livelihoods. For her fellowship, Liba worked with public and private landowners in Hawaii to understand the seed dispersal services that native birds provide and their role in restoring understory fruiting plants for conservation and Hawaiian cultural practices. Liba later worked with Erica Goad, CCC graduate student fellow, on her project on mammal use of dispersed housing developments along the Front Range of Colorado. She also worked closely with Lindsay Ex, CCC practitioner fellow, on her project to develop a learning network for conservation development scientists and practitioners.
