Christine Schadler, M.S., M.A., Wild Canid Ecologist
"Her passion for her subject is contagious." -Deb Kissell
Chris earned a Master’s of Science in Conservation Biology at Antioch University Graduate School. Her thesis focused on the natural recovery of the Eastern Timber Wolf in Michigan. Beginning in the early 1990’s, Chris taught Conservation Issues, Dendrology and Wolf Ecology at the University of New Hampshire, and she received many awards in teaching excellence and student recognition. She teaches adult degree candidates at Granite State College and writes a bi-weekly column for In Depth New Hampshire.
While wolf recovery was the focus of her early work, Chris’ attention shifted to the eastern coyote when she moved to New England. She chose a farm with known coyote problems to raise sheep and train her border collies. Using sound livestock management and common sense, she avoided any predation for over two decades. Between teaching and giving presentations, Chris spends time at camp in northern New Hampshire researching coyote feeding patterns in a mosaic of farms and woodlots.
