We speak with Michael Dax, the New Mexico Representative for Defenders of Wildlife in Santa Fe about the Wildlife Corridors Act. Michael was instrumental in helping to pass legislation in the New Mexico Legislature to establish and protect wildlife corridors, and has been deeply involved in legislative efforts to modernize wildlife management in the state.
Before moving to New Mexico, Michael has worked in the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone National Parks as a trail groomer and tour guide. Michael also earned a master’s degree in environmental history from the University of Montana where he began work on his book, Grizzly West, which focuses on the attempt to reintroduce grizzly bears to the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness in Montana and Idaho.
