Dr. Jordan Schaul is a wildlife ecologist, veterinary scientist and science writer. He held courtesy appointments in zoology and public health departments at the two University of Alaska campuses. During his stints as a zoological curator, scientist as well as a board director of multiple environmental and social justice nonprofits, he contributed to the conservation of imperiled species on several continents. These efforts included anti-poaching and reintroduction initiatives for conservation-sensitive species from whales and elephants to the tiniest of neotropical amphibians.

Implementing sound and sustainable management practices for wild lands and wild species is contingent upon understanding the human dimensions of environmental issues. His focus has shifted to exploring the human condition and pressing societal issues, but the scientist-turned-media-consultant continues to find ways to dignify the burdened and oppressed through engaging multimedia projects.
