About the Event
Craig Ziolkowski is a fisheries and wildlife biologist who has been able to blend his personal interests with career opportunities. As a result, he has traveled to work in several states ranging from North Carolina to Alaska. He considers himself to be an amateur birder as well as amateur mycologist and spends his free time outside engaged in those pursuits. In Alaska, Craig worked as a fisheries and marine mammal biologist, primarily on very large-scale mining and infrastructure development projects occurring throughout the state. After about 8 years in the field, he transitioned to a science advisory position with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Spill Prevention and Response. In this capacity, Craig helped prepare for and respond to wildlife, fish, critical habitats, historical and culturally significant properties along with critical infrastructure impacted by oil spills and hazardous substance releases. One of his proudest accomplishments was serving aboard an interdisciplinary team to develop the Wildlife Protection Guidelines for Oil Spill Response in Alaska. Currently, Craig resides in Stevens Point and works for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources as the Property Supervisor of Mead and McMillan Wildlife Areas. In his presentation “Alaska, a decade in the Last Frontier” Craig will share his experiences living and working at the intersection of development and conservation in Alaska.
