Seth Magle, Ph.D.

Seth first became interested in conservation and ecology as a college student while observing black-tailed prairie dogs living in sidewalk median strips. Eventually, he completed an honors thesis on the behavior of this urban-adapted keystone species; he ultimately expanded on that research for both a master’s degree (from the University of Wisconsin) and a doctorate (from Colorado State University). However, Seth’s interests go far beyond prairie dogs to encompass all wildlife species impacted by urbanization and human development. He has researched urban wildlife species for more than 20 years and published nearly 50 research articles. He is currently the director of the Urban Wildlife Institute at the Lincoln Park Zoo, as well as the executive director of the Urban Wildlife Information Network, an alliance of urban wildlife researchers spanning 24 cities.
