Jeff Lincer

   Biography

Dr. Lincer received his Bachelors and Masters degrees, in Wildlife Biology/Management, from Syracuse University and his Doctorate in Ecology and Toxicology from Cornell University. He is most well known for his work with raptors and other T/E species. and his ability to manage complex interdisciplinary projects and work with government. As President of the RRF (Raptor Research Foundation) from l982 to l988, he oversaw the greatest growth of that professional organization in its entire history. He is still an active member, chairs a raptor research grant committee, and chaired the First International Burrowing Owl Symposium and workshop in Seattle. The symposium and workshop, which was part of the annual RRF Conference, focused on the status, ecology and management of the burrowing owl. Dr. Lincer was the founding Director of the National Wildlife Federation's Raptor Information Center. During that tenure, he coordinated with government agencies and the private sector, developed computerized literature databases, and prioritized raptor habitat throughout the United States for possible acquisition. Recently, Dr. Lincer served as Consulting Editor for the joint RRF/Bureau of Land Management publication entitled, "Raptor Habitat Management Multiple Use Mandate." Over the last four decades, he has worked on major projects from Alaska to Africa, addressing ecological monitoring, environmental impacts, ecotoxicology, endangered species, wetland structure and function, estuarine ecology, coastal zone management and habitat protection and acquisition. Dr. Lincer has extensive experience surveying for and managing burrowing owls.
