About Beth

I am a Zoologist with Colorado Natural Heritage Program. Broadly, I'm interested in wildlife ecology and management, especially the use of quantitative spatial and demographic tools to directly inform the conservation of rare, threatened, or endangered wildlife species. My particular interests focus on ecological interactions among disturbance sources (i.e., fire, disease), wildlife, and habitat. While I have worked with a diversity of wildlife taxa, the majority of my experience has centered on applied conservation of misunderstood mammalian specie - especially coyotes and bats - and outreach to change perceptions of these animals. I have performed field work in a variety of ecosystems throughout Colorado, New England, the Mid-Atlantic, and southeastern United States.
