Dr Axel Moehrenschlager
Dr. Moehrenschlager joined the Calgary Zoo in 1999, following his PhD work at Oxford University’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit. His work focused on coyotes, red foxes, and Canada’s most endangered carnivore, the Swift Fox. He is a member of World Conservation Union (IUCN) Canid and Reintroduction Specialist Groups, co-chair of the Canadian Swift Fox recovery team, and numerous conservation committees. Dr. Moehrenschlager is an Adjunct Associate Professor in the University of Calgary’s Ecology Division and a Senior Research Associate Fellow at Oxford University’s Department of Zoology. Previous field research on wood bison, wolves, red squirrels and peregrine falcons founded his strong interest in restoration ecology, which is reflected in all of the Centre’s projects today.
