Free Webinar - The Evolution and Ecology of Red Wolves

Red wolves were once found throughout the southeastern United States, but indiscriminate killing reduced them to a small, remnant population in coastal Texas and Louisiana by the mid-20th century. Consequently, the extirpation of red wolves facilitated lost opportunities to understand their origin and niche in eastern North America. However, the reintroduction of red wolves to eastern North Carolina and ongoing ecological and genetic studies have provided important insights into the evolution, ecology, and conservation of red wolves.

Join Joseph Hinton, Ph.D. for a special webinar designed to synthesize available information on red wolf evolution and ecology to stimulate discussion on new avenues of research and management of red wolf populations. The free webinar will be offered on Wednesday, January 30, 2019, at 6 pm EST.

Joseph Hinton earned his Ph.D. at the University of Georgia in 2014 and is a postdoctoral researcher at SUNY-ESF assisting an ongoing study on the Adirondack moose population. While at the University of Georgia, Joseph oversaw a large regional study on coyotes in the southeastern United States and focused on the ecology and interactions of red wolves and coyotes, and ecological conditions facilitating hybridization between the two. His research has focused on the ecology, management, and conservation of wildlife populations with a focus on canid communities.
