Alex May

Alex May enjoys the trials and elation from wildlife research, having been seasonally employed for six years prior to beginning his Master’s project. He has worked with insects, cougars, marten, Kodiak bears, wolves, pikas, bald eagles, peregrine falcons, osprey, sage grouse, great blue herons, trumpeter swans, leopards, black bears, pronghorn, mule deer, and wolverines. Moose are now the central component of his fieldwork and computer menagerie. He enjoys that his project has both applied management and ecology components. Alex likes hiking, birding, hiking on skis, reading, and vegetable fermentation.
