Hello, our names are Kyle Zawacki and Josh Romanowski. As part of Organismal Biology at the  Univeristy of Wisconsin- La Crosse, our instructors Meredith Thomsen and Gregory Sandland have given us the task to create this website. This website was created on March 11, 2014 as part of the Spring 2014  semester. We have enjoyed this experienced and learned a lot in the process of learning about the long-tailed weasel.

Kyle Zawacki

Hey, I am Kyle Zawacki and I am currently a sophomore at the University Of Wisconsin-La Crosse. I am majoring in Therapeutic Recreation with a minor in Biology, and hope to graduate in the year 2016. After my undergraduate career I plan to attend Physician Assistant School and have a career in this field. My hobbies include watching sports, swimming, and playing video games, but I also enjoy outside activities such as hunting and playing with my dogs. For this project I completed the life history and reproduction of Mustela frenata as well as the interactions it has with other species. Contact me at with any questions!
