Avery Shawler

Working Wild Challenge Coordinator

Avery is an interdisciplinary wildlife ecologist dedicated to conservation efforts that balance the needs of people and wildlife. She coordinates Working Wild Challenge initiatives, specifically focusing on evaluating the socioeconomic impacts of carnivores and the efficacy of conflict mitigation measures in Oregon, Montana, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico.

Avery holds a Ph.D. in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management from University of California Berkeley and a B.A. from Middlebury College. Her Ph.D. research investigated the ecological and social dimensions of wolf-livestock conflict in Cody, Wyoming.
