Zach Wallace Research Associate

Zach Wallace has studied wildlife across the western U.S. since 2003, including extensive work on Golden Eagles in the intermountain west and desert southwest. Following a long career as a wildlife field technician, he received his M.Sc. in Wildlife Science from Oregon State University, where his research focused on the nesting ecology of Ferruginous Hawks and Golden Eagles in Wyoming. After his graduate research, he worked as a consultant to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, industry, and Native American Tribes on effects of human activities like wind energy development and religious harvest on Golden Eagles. He continues to study raptors at the University of Wyoming as a biometrician for the Wyoming Natural Diversity Database, where his research also includes field studies and analyses on other species of concern, from amphibians to songbirds to plants. As a biometrician, his goal is to deliver actionable results to guide conservation by applying rigorous study designs and cutting-edge analytical techniques to research that is grounded in ecology and natural history. Zach lives in Laramie, WY with his wife Sally and their son Paul. When he’s not working, he’s spending time outdoors with his family or playing the upright bass.
