By Susan Tupper Learn how the husband and wife team of Fran and Frederick Hamerstrom worked to save the greater prairie chicken from extinction in a new book for young readers in the Badger Biographies series, Fran and Frederick Hamerstrom: Wildlife Conservation Pioneers. The Hamerstroms dedicated their lives to understanding and preserving wildlife. As students of the famous Wisconsin naturalist Aldo Leopold, they helped establish new ways for humans to think about habitat conservation. Together, Fran and Frederick spent over thirty years mentoring many future scientists and working to save the greater prairie chicken, and other animals, from extinction.
