Science Advisory Panel

Keith Aubry, Ph.D.

Emeritus Scientist

Keith is an Emeritus Scientist at the U.S. Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest Research Station in Olympia, WA.  He has been conducting research on terrestrial wildlife in the Pacific Northwest for almost 40 years.  For the last 20 years or so, his research has focused primarily on gaining better understandings of the conservation status of rare and elusive forest carnivores, including fisher, Canada lynx, Cascade and Sierra Nevada red foxes, coastal marten populations, and wolverine.  A lack of reliable information on their evolutionary history, current and historical distributions, and ecological relations is often a significant impediment to the conservation of their populations.  Dr. Aubry’s research program is designed to fill those information gaps so that informed conservation decisions can be made before a species becomes threatened, endangered, or extinct.
