Cram Joins Extension Animal Resources Department at NMSU

LAS CRUCES - Douglas Cram joined New Mexico State University's Cooperative Extension Service in December as a specialist with the animal resources department.

Cram is working on a two-year study of Southwestern fire ecology. "After completing this project, I hope to do additional research related to interactions of fire, mechanical thinning and wildlife under grant funding," he said.

Cram earned a bachelor's degree in wildlife science at NMSU in 1996 and a master's degree in forest resources in 2001 from Oklahoma State.

A graduate of Los Alamos High School, Cram worked with Los Alamos National Laboratory in 1997, doing assessments of the laboratory's forest lands. He spent six summers in the 1990s working at Philmont Scout Ranch in northern New Mexico.
