Wolves of Yellowstone: History and Current Research, Brenna Cassidy: Master's Student, University of MT, Wildlife Biology.
Yellowstone wolves are often in the news. This is your chance to learn from one of the scientists who has been directly involved in studying them.
Brenna was born and raised in northern Illinois where her curiosity for the natural world grew in the forests and tall grass prairies. She completed a degree in Wildlife Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and spent summers during her undergraduate degree in northern Wisconsin or Yellowstone National Park. After graduating in 2012, she moved back to Yellowstone and worked on multiple projects studying birds, cougars, and wolves but has spent the last five years seasonally migrating between the Bird Program and Wolf Project. Her MS research will focus on estimating survival of gray wolves in Yellowstone National Park. She can be found trying her hand at most outdoor activities but is usually found trail running, backpacking, skiing, or woodburning
