DDWS associate director leaving

Sarah Lathrop, associate director for the "Ding" Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge, has taken a fundraising position with her alma mater, Hanover College in Indiana.

Working in a telecommuting capacity for her new job, she is not leaving Sanibel and plans to continue supporting the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge as a volunteer.

Lathrop's last day is Aug. 28.

She started with DDWS five years ago as an intern.

Collection volunteer to retire

Dr. Judy Clark, curatorial assistant and supporter of the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum on Sanibel, will soon be moving to Cincinnati to be closer to family.

Prior to joining the museum in 2013, she was a research scientist working on animal parasitology and bacteriology.

Clark's analytical skills and familiarity with scientific nomenclature proved very valuable to the museum's collection projects.
