Tony Clevenger is a Senior Wildlife Research Scientist who specializes in identifying the effects of highways and other barriers on wildlife connectivity, including analyzing the factors that contribute to wildlife-vehicle collisions.
Y2Y has been supporting his multi-year research on wolverines, an effort to understand how these wide-ranging predators are affected by such barriers in southern British Columbia and Alberta. His work is especially important in gaining insight into trans-border connectivity, and keeping small and often isolated wolverine populations in the U.S. connected with the larger populations in Canada.
Tony is a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences Committee on Effects of Highways on Natural Communities and Ecosystems. He has published over 40 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals and co-authored three books including, Road Ecology: Science and Solutions.
