Dr. Jordan Schaul’s contributions to Nat Geo Voices reflect his broad training and holistic approach to addressing environmental and social issues facing the planet. Sharing some of his own efforts to safeguard imperiled wildlife populations through sorta situ (ex situ/in situ) conservation practices, he discusses work in some remote and undisturbed habitats to more urban human-dominated landscapes. Examples include, repatriating endangered wood bison in Alaska, rehabilitating exploited sloth bears forced to perform on city streets of the Indian subcontinent, censusing ocelot and margay populations in the dense montane cloud orests of Costa Rica, and conducting telemetry studies on sea lions in the Sea of Cortez.
His articles feature a series of interviews on pressing environmental issues with his distinguished colleague Dr. Michael Hutchins. Hutchins held posts as Executive Director/CEO of The Wildlife Society and Director/William Conway Chair of Conservation and Science for the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and has been most influential in developing policies that impact the welfare and conservation status of wildlife in not only North America but around the world.
From the perspective of a conservationist, Jordan draws attention to the plight of endangered species sharing perspectives on sensitivity to both cultural and geopolitical issues surround wildlife protection and management. As an animal welfarist, with interests overlapping with conservation agendas, he broaches some unresolved issues and ethical discourse surrounding the nexus of conservation and animal welfare.
In sharing his experiences and those of his colleagues, he hopes to impart the importance of integrating collaborative field study with captive breeding and management programs for conservation-sensitive species in zoological facilities. In doing so, he has featured high profile and lesser known success stories and ongoing efforts to protect and preserve vanishing wildlife and wildlife places.
