Brian Mealey is the President and Executive Director of the Institute of Wildlife Sciences. He is a wildlife biologist working on multiple species of vertebrates in Florida Bay, Everglades National Park. His research partnerships have included working with the Crested Caracara, Swallow-tailed Kites and Snail Kites. He is currently monitoring dispersal of fledged Florida Bay Bald Eagles through satellite technology. Herpetological projects include insular ecology projects with the Diamondback Terrapins, Mangrove Water Snakes and the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnakes. He has been a wildlife consultant with utility companies, government agencies and universities since 1992.
