Fred Lindzey

In 1976, Fred Lindzey received his Ph.D. in Wildlife Ecology from Oregon State University. Since that time, natural resource and wildlife managers representing every major agency have relied on him for advice. Currently an associate professor of zoology and physiology at the University of Wyoming and assistant leader of the Wyoming Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, much of Fred’s research and expertise deals with large carnivores such as mountain lions, grizzly and black bears. Fred’s work has improved the way predators and many other animals are currently managed in the West. Fred has received numerous outstanding performance achievement awards relating to his conservation efforts, and is currently a member of the IUCN Bear Specialist Group. He has presented papers at symposia throughout the west and abroad, and his research is well represented in numerous wildlife management journals and books.
