Doug Smith is the project leader for the Wolf Restoration Project in Yellowstone and has been with the program since its inception. Doug has studied wolves for over 20 years. Before Yellowstone, he worked with wolves in Michigan (Isle Royale National Park) and Minnesota. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Wildlife Biology from the University of Idaho, a Master of Science in Biology from Michigan Technological University, and a Ph.D. from the University of Nevada, Reno, in Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology.
Rick McIntyre was hired as a naturalist at Yellowstone National Park in 1994 and had the title Wolf Interpreter. For over 15 years, from June of 2000 through August of 2015, Rick went out before dawn every single day into the park. In early 2019, he surpassed 100,000 wolf sightings in Yellowstone with nearly 12,000 pages of field notes of his observations. Rick continues his daily study of wolves in Yellowstone while writing three books about his experiences with wolves in Yellowstone.
Carter Niemeyer, formerly of the Dept. of U.S. Fish & Wildlife, Carter served as the wolf recovery coordinator for Idaho. As an expert government trapper, he was a member of the federal wolf reintroduction team in Canada in the mid-1990s. Niemeyer has been a trapper, hunter, and wildlife proponent his entire life. Wolves, he believes, add to the outdoor experience, and people who see or hear them should consider the experience thrilling. Wolves do not, as many believe, kill everything in sight, destroy their food supply, or lick their chops at kids waiting at bus stops. They are simply predators like lions and bears, and anyone who believes otherwise is, well, wrong.
