Rae Wynn-Grant

Ecologist and National Geographic Fellow Rae Wynn-Grant credits her passion for megafauna on the wildlife and conservation shows she watched on TV as a child. She uses statistical modeling to investigate how humans can influence the behavior and ecologyof large carnivores. Rae’s research has taken her all over the planet—from northeastern Montana and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem to study grizzly bears; rural Kenya and Tanzania to monitor lions; and the Congo basin on the trail of gorillas and chimpanzees.
