Joe Rogers

Joe Rogers, M.S. is Geoscience Technician, GIS and Geospatial Imagery Specialist at the Rushing River Institute. Rushing Rivers' mission is to prevent further destruction of our powerful and beautiful riverscapes by raising public awareness and delivering leading edge, ecologically sound technology to conservationists and resource managers. About one third of freshwater fish species are already extinct or on the verge of extinction. They are disappearing five times faster than those on land.
