Speaker Announcements

Julian Matthews, an enrolled Nez Perce (Nimiipuu) tribal member and coordinator for Nimiipuu Protecting the Environment, a Tribal member-run 501(c)3, has been involved in a number of issues impacting the Treaty of 1855 with the Nez Perces. A major focus has been the Snake River Dam breaching and the Wolf issues within the Treaty area, particularly Idaho.

Julian will discuss wolves in the Nez Perce (Nimiipuu) Treaty of 1855 area and efforts the Nimiipuu are making to protect them.

Cameron Macias grew up in Port Angeles in western Washington State. She completed her B.S. in Environmental Science at Western Washington University. Prior to attending the University of Idaho, Cameron spent 4 years working as a Wildlife Technician for the Lower Elwha Tribe, of which she’s a member.

Cameron will talk about her work on the The Olympic Cougar Project, estimating cougar and bobcat abundance on the Olympic Peninsula using a combination of noninvasive genetic sampling, GPS collars, and a camera grid.

John Murtaugh joined Defenders of Wildlife in 2019 to help deliver an electoral victory to reintroduce wolves to Colorado by 2023. Past experience with the return of wolves to California instilled in him a powerful lesson on the values of wolf-livestock coexistence, which he now uses in his work with ranchers to promote partnerships necessary for broader wildlife recovery. 

John will hold a discussion on the past history, current happenings, and plans for the future for Colorado’s wolves.
