University of Montana’s Wildlife Biology Program - Advancing Wildlife and Landscape Conservation

June 8, 2016

Presenter: Chad Bishop, Director, Wildlife Biology Program, University of Montana

The Wildlife Biology Program at University of Montana is one of three academic programs within the university designated as a Program of National Distinction. This designation reflects the program’s highly productive research faculty, ability to attract students from across North America, and ranking as one of the nation’s top wildlife programs. Located in Missoula, the program is positioned strategically to help advance wildlife and landscape conservation in the Northern Rockies. The program plays a lead role in the integration of landscape connectivity, quantitative wildlife ecology, and conservation genetics.

One focus of the wildlife biology program is to facilitate analysis of wildlife population data at landscape-scales to help inform conservation and management strategies that cross jurisdictional boundaries. We recognize an ever-growing need among governmental agencies and non-governmental organizations for such transboundary analyses of wildlife data to help inform species and landscape conservation strategies. Indeed, this is closely tied to the vision and mission of Landscape Conservation Cooperatives. The UM Wildlife Biology Program is positioned well to facilitate partner-driven, collaborative analyses of wildlife species data informed by landscape attributes at broad spatial scales.

University of Montana's Wildlife Biology Program Ranks Top in North America

the Wildlife Biology program at the University of Montana was ranked #1 in North America. UM News reporter Ally Barry spoke with program Director chad Bishop about why the program is so successful.

UM Biology

Ken Dial is a professor in The University of Montana's Division of Biological Sciences and an internationally respected biologist who specializes in bird evolution and the mechanics of flight. He has been the keynote speaker at NASA conferences and meetings of the Society of Experimental Test Pilots -- in large part because of his studies on how birds change the shape of their wings in flight and the differences between small and large bird flight behavior.

Live Chat Q&A With Dr. Erick Greene and Rob Domenech, July 12, 2018 | Hellgate Ospreys

Watch live with updates, tweets, and highlights at



Watch the cam and learn about the Montana Osprey Project at



*********************************

This Osprey nest is at the mouth of the spectacular Hellgate Canyon at the edge of Missoula, Montana. It’s in a very busy location, right outside the Riverside Health Care Center and next to busy parking lots, a construction site, a busy highway, and a railroad. However, it’s also an ideal location in many ways, since these Ospreys have riverfront property only about 50 feet from the Clark Fork River. Being so close to people does not bother them, and hundreds of people enjoy watching them every day.

The female Osprey at this nest is called Iris because she has very distinctive spots on her iris, especially in her left eye. These iris patterns serve as individual barcodes and allow us to identify her. She has nested at this site for many years. Her mate of many years, Stanley, did not return in 2016, and she attempted to breed with a new male dubbed Louis after an influential local Salish elder named Louis Adams (for more info:

Ospreys are consummate fishing birds, and this pair fishes primarily from the Clark Fork River and nearby Rattlesnake Creek. They use their 6–7 foot wingspans to soar above the water, looking for fish, then diving as deep as 3 feet for shallow-swimming prey. Adult Ospreys usually weigh 3–4 pounds, and they can carry prey up to 50 percent of their own weight. Ospreys can live up to 25 years, and they typically lay 1–4 eggs in a clutch.

The nest used to be on a power pole about 200 feet west of where it is now. This was dangerous, since the Ospreys could have been electrocuted, causing fires and power blackouts. In 2007, the current nest platform was erected to provide a safer place for the Ospreys to nest. They took to it immediately. Getting the new nest platform set up, and installing and running to high resolution camera for this feed for you to enjoy has been a large effort involving many groups: Riverside Health Care Center, Karen Wagner, Kate Davis and Raptors of the Rockies, Northwestern Energy, Dave Taylor Roofing Company, and Dr. Erick Greene of the University of Montana.

Dr Erick Greene Retrieves Fish at Hellgate 9 04 12

There was a scuffle over a fish between Squish, Crown Royal and Stanley at the Hellgate nest last night. Dr. Erick Greene went over to check things out this morning and retrieved the fish that was dropped during the scuffle. He tried throwing the fish back up into the nest, but his basketball skills need some improvement and the fish never made it back there! LOL!
