In 2007, Auburn University constructed a 430-acre outdoor classroom – The Deer Lab – that also includes research projects throughout Alabama and the Southeast for graduate and undergraduate students.
Activities conducted at the Deer Lab help researchers gain a better understanding of white-tailed deer genetics, health, reproduction and environment, as well as negative impacts, such as disease and feral hogs, all within their natural habitat.
Our goal is to promote healthy, thriving white-tailed deer populations for this valuable environmental and economic natural resource. Your gift will provide supplies for genetic and immune system testing, hormone sampling, parasite analysis, supplements and feed to ensure the Deer Lab’s herd of approximately 100 deer are well-cared for and that our researchers have the resources needed for continued data collection and analysis.
A gift to the Auburn University Deer Lab on Tiger Giving Day will help our researchers continually improve and innovate the conservation efforts of our wild white-tailed deer population.
Thank you for your consideration of a gift to the Deer Lab and War Eagle!
