Wildlife Biologist Assistant
Anthony Pawlicki graduated from the University of Maine in 2017 with a B.S. in Wildlife Ecology with a concentration in Conservation Biology and a minor in Political Science. He is from Buffalo Grove, Illinois and decided to go to the University of Maine due to the excellence of their Wildlife and Fisheries program. During his time at the University of Maine he worked with snowshoe hares and spruce grouse in the North Maine Woods, and completed an undergraduate thesis entitled "Mind the Gap: Effects of Habitat and Climate on Northern Water Snake (Nerodia sipedon sipedon) Distribution in Maine." He moved out to Arizona in the summer of 2017 to work on a project in the Goode Lab focused on reproduction of flat-tailed horned lizards (Phrynosoma mcallii). He became the field crew leader in 2018 and has worked on the project since. In his free time Anthony enjoys playing sports, hiking, looking for herpetofauna, photography, and volunteering for the Catalina State Park Nature Program.
