Dr Tucker Murphy
Tucker Murphy received a Rhodes scholarship to study his Masters degree in Zoology from Oxford in 2005. He has also worked on two puma projects, the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Greater Yellowstone Cougar DNA Study and Ken Logan’s 10-year Uncompahgre Plateau Puma Project. Through these pursuits he has gained extensive experience performing field necropsies on puma prey and recognizing the signs left behind by this cryptic species. His doctoral project on cougars combines his interest in zoology with two of his undergraduate pursuits: Spanish and anthropology.
