I'm hooked!
The San Joaquin kit fox is a very special animal.  While working at CSU Stanislaus as a researcher for the Endangered Species Recovery Program, I was introduced to the kit fox during a radio-telemetry study. That was back in 1997.  Ever since then I've been hooked on kit foxes and swift foxes (and all other canids).  I've written several peer-reviewed papers on the kit fox, and I am always on the look-out for books and other literature on foxes and other canids.  These are wonderful animals, and I'll do what I can to keep them wild and free.

About Me I am a certified wildlife biologist with nearly 20 years of professional wildlife and research experience. My work as a researcher has focused on the fauna and ecosystems of Northern, Central, and Southern California, and the Mojave Desert provinces and includes extensive baseline mammalian inventories, conduct surveys focused on rare animals, habitat assessment, land retirement and restoration, radio telemetry, and long-term ecological studies on several endangered species. I have conducted studies for a variety of private and public agency projects, including surveys for endangered species along canals, range-wide presence/absence surveys, and scent dog detection work for endangered foxes.

    Greetings all:  I had to delete all of the comments posted to my page.  There were too many broken images, links, and videos and there were some java scripts that were bogging down my computer.  In addition, downloading images from other bandwidths was too much for my little laptop.  Thank you for understanding, and I apologize for any inconvenience!
