Dr. Catherine Feher-Elston: How to Peacefully Co-Exist with Wildlife

Until You Walk The Path, You Won’t Know Where it Goes is internationally-acclaimed author, archaeologist, and historian, Dr. Catherine Feher-Elston, at 1 pm eastern on August , 2012 as we talk about we can peacefully co-exist with wildlife.

Dr. Catherine Feher-Elston works extensively with environmental and indigenous rights issues. She wrote the Naturesong book series which includes Wolfsong: A Natural and Fabulous History of Wolves and the award-winning Ravensong: A Natural and Fabulous History of Ravens and Crows.

She has lived and worked among many of the world’s indigenous peoples, including Montana’s Northern Cheyenne, where she chaired the Chief Dull Knife College communications division and founded the Little Wolf Writing and History Center.

Her involvement with wolves started in the 1990s, when her work in journalism brought her to the Mogollon Rim country of Arizona and New Mexico. She covered Mexican wolf reintroduction. Among her interests is wildlife rehabilitation. As Fate dictated, a wolf cub with a defective liver came into her life. She cared for Mowgli for two years before his condition took his life. As a result, she wrote Wolfsong, in an effort to share the facts about wolves with the world. Research for Wolfsong included spending time in the Yellowstone Country.

Currently, Feher-Elston works in development for a Northern Rockies community. She works to support environmental sustainability, museum programs and historic preservation. She is the director of The Ravensong Group, an organization that supports the Endangered Species Act and the rule of law in the United States.

In 2012, Dr. Feher-Elston accepted an appointment as development director for the national organization Predator Defense  and serves as the organization's Northern Rockies representative. In summer 2012, she worked on a coyote coexistence task force with the City of Carson, California. She is an ardent wolf and wildlife advocate.
