Photo of CRC spring break

More than 20 students spent their spring break at the National Zoo’s Conservation and Research Center (CRC) in Front Royal, Va., as part of the New Century College course “Conserving Endangered Species.” The students shown here are conducting a field survey of the Eld’s deer population on the CRC grounds. Throughout the week, students had the opportunity to work with CRC researchers and were introduced to such laboratory and field techniques as cryobiology and remote sensing.
