Film on Cohen’s Research Wins Award


A short film entitled “Under Pressure” and highlighting Dr. Brad Cohen’s research recently won second place at the Chene Film Festival. The Film Festival, presented by Ducks Unlimited and hosted in Memphis, Tennessee, featured short films by numerous creators and focused on stories about outdoor recreation and conservation.

“Under Pressure,” produced by Brandon Martin, highlights Cohen’s ongoing waterfowl research in western Tennessee. Featured in the film are Cohen and his students Grant Rhodes, Cory Highway and Colin Dunkel. The group is studying how Mallards respond to hunting pressure and interact with food, refuges and private land. All research is sponsored by grants that Cohen has received from the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.

Congratulations, Dr. Cohen, on receiving more grants and involving students directly in ongoing research!
