Human and Climate Moderated Genetic Structure of Black Bears in New Mexico Rick Winslow, NM Department of Game & Fish
Join us for an interesting discussion of New Mexico’s black bears. Rick Winslow, Large Carnivore and Furbearer Biologist with NMDG&F, will describe results of his research on black bear genetic relatedness across New Mexico and how the research got to where it is today.
Rick is originally from the Bay Area in California. He earned a B.S. in Wildlife Biology from Humboldt State University in California in 1989. From 1989-1990, he served in the Peace Corps in Guatemala, then engaged in spotted owl surveys and research from 1992-1994. In 1992 Rick moved to NM and was Forest Biologist and later Fisheries Biologist for the Navajo Nation. He joined the NMDGF as Game Warden in 2000 and became Large Carnivore Biologist in 2003.
