Brian Fillmore received his B.S. in fishery resources in 2003 from University of Idaho. In March 2018, he was selected to be the new supervisor of the Oklahoma Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office, located in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. Brian has worked for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for 18 years. Prior to this appointment, he worked at the service’s Tishomingo National Fish Hatchery for 12 years where he raised and released alligator gar, Arkansas River shiner, channel catfish, paddlefish and various sunfish species. Brian was also on the leading edge of culturing alligator snapping turtle—a rare and understudied species that the hatchery strives to bolster in the wild. In his new position, Brian and his crew Fillmore and his crew will collect wild paddlefish broodstock to help expand the fish’s range. They will also assess populations of alligator snapping turtle as well as the threatened leopard darter, a fish native to southeast Oklahoma.

Dr. Joe Holbrook received his B.S. (2008) and Ph.D. (2015) from the University of Idaho. Since 2015, he has been working on the ecology and conservation of threatened Canada lynx in the Rocky Mountains. Joe is currently a Research Scientist with Montana State University, but works at the Forest Service’s Rocky Mountain

The majority of Joe’s research experience has been focused on the ecology and conservation of mammalian carnivores. For instance, he has worked on cougars in Idaho and Texas, jaguarundis in Mexico, American badgers in Idaho, and Canada lynx in Montana and Colorado. Applied issues motivate his work, but he strives to place those questions within a strong theoretical foundation to jointly advance management and ecological science. Joe’s work is widely published in peer-reviewed journals across a diversity of outlets. For more information, please see Joe’s website: //sites.google.com/site/josephdholbrook03/.
Lisa Langelier transferred to University of Idaho, completing her BS in 1979 and returning for an MS (1983). Early in her career she worked for Washington Department of Wildlife, US Fish and Wildlife, and The Peregrine Fund. She retired from the US Fish and Wildlife Service in December 2013 after 25 years working on national wildlife refuges in Colorado and the Inland Northwest. In 2016 she published her first book, The Wild Eye: Field Notes from a Wildlife Refuge, with essays that describe her delights and dilemmas while managing Little Pend Oreille, Turnbull, and Kootenai national wildlife refuges.
Eric R. Larson received his B.S. in Fishery Resources from the University of Idaho in 2004. He then earned an M.S. in Biology at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville (2007) and a Ph.D. in Aquatic and Fishery Sciences from the University of Washington, Seattle (2011). He conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and in a joint program between the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago and the University of Notre Dame, before being hired as an assistant professor in the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 2015. Eric is a freshwater ecologist who works to develop management-relevant tools for the conservation of imperiled species and the prevention and control of invasive species. He has published over 40 peer-reviewed scientific papers on topics including species distribution modeling, trophic ecology, and environmental DNA.
Sarah Malick-Wahls was among the first cohorts to receive her B.S. in Conservation Biology in 2005 from the University of Idaho. She spent several years working seasonal wildlife positions in a number of states from California to Connecticut, and from Alabama to Washington, before completing an M.S. in Wildlife Biology in 2011 from Northern Michigan University. She is currently a wildlife biologist for the Superior National Forest in Minnesota where she monitors populations and analyzes projects for impacts to sensitive terrestrial wildlife species including Canada lynx, great gray and boreal owls, northern goshawks, and others. Sarah's favorite memories of UI center on the summer she spent as an undergraduate research intern at Taylor Ranch where she studied yellow-bellied marmots for her senior thesis project.
