Career Highlights:

Nature & Pop Culture Writer (Nat Geo, Huffington Post):
In 2010, while Curator of Animals at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, Dr. Jordan Carlton Schaul began contributing to National Geographic Society’s editorial news publication Voices upon invitation from Founding Editor in Chief and then-Vice President of Digital Media for National Geographic David Braun.In 2016, he began contributing to Huffington Post as a science writer, publishing articles in the realm of natural history and environmental conservation along with other topics relevant to biology and medicine. In addition, he conducted interviews with celebrities and public figures and misc. pop culture topics from dating, and matchmaking to social issues and causes. He began interviewing public figures and celebrity influencers advocating for wildlife conservation and/or animal welfare as a dedicated interest topic for Nat Geo in 2011 for the purposes of drawing a niche demographic to his writings.
Zoological Park Curator/Affiliate Professor (Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center/University of Alaska):
While at Nat Geo, Dr. Schaul was Curator of Animals at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center (AWCC) and an affiliate professor at the University of Alaska Anchorage. In addition, he served in a courtesy appointment as a non-resident research research Associate at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
Highlights:
-Wood Bison Restoration:
 In collaboration with the US Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS), the Alaska Department of Fish & Game (ADF&G), and the Bison Specialist Group of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN/SSC/BSG), Dr. Schaul and animal care staff at the AWCC prepared adult Canadian wood bison founder stock and more than 80 of their offspring (born in human care at the AWCC), for a 2015 repatriation effort.
The reintroduction of wood bison, the larger of two subspecies of American bison, and the largest terrestrial mammal in the Western Hemisphere, was considered a monumental conservation effort that attracted dignitaries and public officials, including a visit to the AWCC by US Senator Murkowski and USFWS Director Dan Ashe.
Extirpated from Alaska in the Late 1800’s wood bison now roam free in the Interior region of Alaska.
Also consulting various zoo association entities and conservation organizations on conservation science, marketing & education initiatives EAZA Carnivore Conservation Campaign (new media communications);IBA (conservation education); Conservation/Welfare NGO Cetacean Conservation/ Great Cat & Rare Canid Act (Research/Analysis); Developing the Zoo Peeps brand for zoo and zoo-based conservation professionals..
-Orphaned Bear Conditioning Program: As Animal Curator and later as Director of Conservation Programs for the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, Dr. Schaul, a domestic and exotic animal trainer, also lead the acclimation, behavioral management training and enrichment program for two very special and distinguished bears. Two orphaned cubs from Kodiak Island were the stars of a diplomatic ambassadorial conservation education initiative between the United States and Sweden.
The “diplomatic ambassadorship”, which was coordinated by ADF&G and facilitated by the AWCC orphaned wildlife acclimation program was intended to be a gesture of goodwill. However, the unprecedented permanent loan was primarily intended to draw attention to the successful conservation management programs for insular (island), coastal and interior circumpolar brown bear populations of the Nearctic, and specifically parts of Canada and Alaska.
Not only were two bears given a second chance at life the, but the Swedes hope is that the bear ambassadors will encourage continued interest in species re-wildling and repatriation efforts in circumpolar region of Europe, like Scandinavia.

Placed in human care under the supervision of Dr. Schaul, the cubs were raised and trained using a free-contact/handling technique and positive reinforcement. They were featured with Dr. Schaul in two documentaries, including a BBC production. He also cited the reckless but inadvertent casualty of sows with cubs in a lecture he regularly delivered to veterinary students on the ethics of hunting and for an MSNBC production on human-wildlife conflict.

He was awarded grants to advance capital campaigns for residential housing on the property for interns, students, researchers and miscellaneous staff. He also lectured to graduate students in conjunction with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game wildlife biologists for a curriculum designed by Bear Trust International taught at the Center.

Director of Operations (Orange County Zoo (CA):
In 2013, he returned to the Lower 48 to assume a curatorial and operations role at the OC Zoo following the departure of the Zoo’s Curator of Operations and a San Diego Zoo Global alumni.   The Zoo is managed by the the Orange County Park’s System. OC Parks  encompasses 60,000 acres of wild lands, open space and coastal shore line. The county run system serves millions of residents each year, and Dr. Schaul was recruited to not only manage the daily animal care operations program at the Zoo, but to integrate conservation programs with the larger park system. The Zoo is a unique facility catering to orphaned and ill animals native to Southern California and the Southwestern United States. With his specific background working not only with North American wildlife but regionally specific assemblages of North American species, Dr. Schaul was poised to direct conservation initiatives in conjunction with OC Parks.
Consultant Western Wildlife Outreach:
Dr. Schaul currently works as a consulting associate for Western Wildlife Outreach headquartered in Washington state. The non-profit conservation outreach organization historically contracts with federal and state agencies to mitigate human-wildlife conflict in the Pacific Northwest. Western Wildlife (formerly Grizzly Bear Outreach Project) founded by celebrity naturalist and documentary filmmaker Chris Morgan, offers on-site visits and mobile and remote outreach specifically aimed at reducing conflict with carnivores in both urban and rural areas of Washington, Idaho and Oregon. The organization increasingly offers adjunct support to wildlife agencies and partners with other national and local conservation groups to educate the general public in hopes of changing perceptions about wildlife in human-dominated landscapes and reduce negative interactions with them.

After serving as the director of operations at a zoological facility in Southern California, Dr. Schaul began consulting zoos, sanctuaries and rescue centers concerning animal welfare, conservation, behavior management, marketing and advancement initiatives. Recently, he consulted Zoo Boise and the Wildlife WayStation in California.

A graduate of University School for Boys, Skidmore College, John Carroll University and The Ohio State University, Dr. Schaul holds degrees in psychology, zoology and veterinary science and attended clinical programs in veterinary medicine and an animal training vocational program.

He taught zoo animal management and zoo animal behavior to graduate and undergraduate students at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and instructed a veterinary preventive medicine rotation for 4th-year veterinary students at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in conjunction with The Ohio State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. He was also a regular guest lecturer for an ethics and jurisprudence course at a veterinary college in California.

Collectively, Dr. Schaul has worked at or been affiliated with more than six zoological facilities as an animal attendant, keeper, trainer, researcher, and/or curator. As an exotic animal trainer he has worked with animals in documentary and feature film productions, and to advance behavior research, public presentation and engagement programs.

Consulting Westerner In-Residence:
Dr. Schaul was the first Westerner-in-Residence for Wildlife SOS, South Asia’s largest rescue and welfare organization with approximately 10 sanctuary rescue facilities in India. He continues to consult the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center

He has has worked with diversity of wildlife species, including birds of prey, large ungulates, primates and marine mammals. More recently, he has catered to the needs of companion dog owners where he lives in Southern California through his animal behavior management company Animal Trainer Dude.
