Matt Fox
Programs Manager

I am…a field biologist. An insatiable explorer. A committed conservationist. My curiosity about wildlife and passion for protecting it has taken me to some of the most remote, isolated wilderness areas in the world. Until I turned my attention toward a keystone species who needs protection now more than ever before. The wolf.

Hi, I’m Matt

Matt Fox is a passionate and dedicated conservationist who has pursued the cause of ecological stewardship around the globe, with some of the most respected names in the field.

Before coming to the Endangered Wolf Center, he worked as a field biologist with the Andean Bear Foundation, Panthera, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, the Sea Turtle Conservancy and the World Wildlife Fund.

Matt has worked in such remote locations as the Andes mountains of Peru, the Gobi Desert of Mongolia, the Intag cloud forest of Ecuador and the Limon province of Costa Rica, among many others. In 2017, Matt was the first biologist ever to survey the Onon Balj Strictly Protected Zone, an intensely isolated wilderness along the Siberian border, where he discovered a new species of vole, the Myodes pseudovulpis.

Besides his work in the conservation field, Matt is a trained safari guide, achieving his 1st class certification with the Field Guide Association of Southern Africa in 2009. He has worked at a number of national parks and bush camps throughout southern Africa, including the Nkambeni Lodge and the world-renowned Kruger National Park.

The protection and stewardship of nature is Matt’s life-long mission, and he is proud to further that goal by energizing citizen conservationists and furthering environmental education as the Program Manager at the Endangered Wolf Center.
