- Brad is relatively new to Twitter, but he's been taking pictures for some time, and using them to communicate about his work. He's found that even having a picture in tweets can make a huge difference in response.
- Brad gave us a brief presentation featuring some of his photos.
- Researchers in the field working with shore birds also sometimes have to deal with polar bears.
