After Humboldt, Dominic worked for US Fish and Wildlife Service in Alturas, CA.

  For his thesis, Dom conducted an experiment to identify management practices that may attract geese to public grasslands. Specifically, he tested fertilizer versus clover cultivation as a means to provide abundant, nutritious forage for Aleutian geese. This species was formerly endangered but now has increased in numbers such that their grazing of short-grass pastures threatens the livelihood of local ranchers and dairy-owners. Dom’s project aimed to reveal realistic management activities that may attract geese to public land and ease the impact of the geese on private pastures.
