Tim Fullman

Mason Cummings, The Wilderness Society

Tim Fullman is a wildlife ecologist with the Alaska office of The Wilderness Society.

He joined the team in Anchorage in 2014. His research focuses on understanding movements and distributions of large herbivores in response to environmental factors and human impacts. Currently, much of his work considers caribou responses to energy development in Arctic Alaska. Previous research investigated impacts of elephants on vegetation and large herbivores in southern Africa. Tim has a B.S. in Animal Biology from the University of California, Davis, a M.S. in Interdisciplinary Ecology from The University of Florida, and a Ph.D. in Geography from the University of Florida. When he is not working, Tim enjoys hiking and camping, wildlife photography, board games, and visiting zoos with his wife and two kids.
