Today on the show we are talking with Ph.D. candidate from the University of Utah, Mark Chynoweth. Mark is conducting fascinating research on large carnivores in Eastern Turkey, focusing specifically on Gray Wolves, Brown Bears and the Eurasian Lynx.
Mark’s research provides some great insight into the conservation issues faced by large predators all across the globe, and he’s also got some interesting stories about what it’s like to conduct biological research in a politically unstable country.
Mark collaborates with a Turkish nonprofit, The KuzeyDoga Society which is based in Kars, eastern Turkey.
