Gary Schroyen

Gary Schroyen is a researcher, tracker, educator and citizen scientist. Schroyen is a vocal advocate in the protection of critical wildlife habitat and of the local native wildlife. The primary focus on camera trapping has been the study of animal communication and behavior. In particular that of the American Black Bear, Roosevelt Elk, Cougar and the Vancouver Island Wolf. One of Schroyen's goals is to help erase the negative stigma of our natural predators through public awareness and education via his slide presentations.
