As our Volgenau Wildlife Fellow, Steve ably lead our wildlife connectivity field research in the Pigeon River Gorge from 2018-2021 and we’re so happy to have him now on the Southeast team permanently.

With 20 years of experience studying sensitive wildlife and habitats, his aim is to find the balance between the need for novel research and using existing, best available information to make timely decisions to conserve wildlife and landscapes. He has worked as a wildlife biologist for Virginia Tech, Arizona Game & Fish and Washington Fish & Wildlife and holds BS degrees in biology and finance from the University of South Florida and a MS in biology from the University of West Florida.
