College of Natural Resources Room 10
Diane Evans Mack, Regional Wildlife Biologist, Idaho Department of Fish and Game, received a BS in Natural Resource Management from the University of Rhode Island (1980) and an MS in Forestry from Northern Arizona University (1995). Her early career was focused on birds, first as a T&E biologist for New Hampshire Audubon, then for the National Forest System and research branch of the Forest Service out west, where she continued work on forest fragmentation and forest-dwelling birds. She spent 7 years with the Pacific Northwest Research Station monitoring the federally threatened marbled murrelet. Diane transitioned to the Idaho Department of Fish and Game in 2003 to become the nongame biologist in the McCall subregion. Diane is Recovery Coordinator for the federally listed northern Idaho ground squirrel and has worked a number of years conducting track surveys and camera surveys for forest carnivores. Most recently she was Idaho’s lead for the Western States Wolverine Camera Survey, a 4-state effort to establish a baseline of wolverine distribution and genetics.
