Nate Webb has come a long way to return home. In 2006 , his studies on wolves and elk drew the Chapter’s attention for their clarity and originality. Nate was that year’s William Wishart Graduate Student Scholarship winner.
After his PhD, Nate joined the Alberta Ministry of Environment and Parks where he was their carnivore specialist. But a move home, to his native Maine, was always on his mind. He did go home, and joined the Maine Department of Fish & Wildlife. They too recognized Nate’s special abilities, and today he directs the Wildlife Division of Maine F&W.
Nate is another great example of how our early support for inspiring young scientists is influencing wildlife management around the world.
