Rena Borkhataria, Ph.D. student in the wildlife ecology and conservancy program at the University of Florida, places a tag on the leg of a wood stork as part of a study that will help scientists to understand adult wood stork survival and to help with questions about population growth. The wood stork was captured Tuesday morning in North Naples, harnessed with a GPS device, measured, weighed, had blood drawn to determine sex, and had feathers taken to determine mercury levels.
