Patrick Lendrum, M.S.

Biologist, Teton Cougar Project
Patrick Lendrum

Patrick Lendrum serves as a Project Biologist for Panthera’s Teton Cougar Project (TCP) in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem of Wyoming. Lendrum joined the TCP after completing his M.S. in Biology at Idaho State University in 2012, where he studied mule deer migration patterns in response to natural-gas extraction in northwestern Colorado. Before receiving his M.S., Lendrum received his B.S. from Humboldt State University in 2007 after completing a semester abroad at Griffith University in Australia and an exchange program at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.

Prior to joining Panthera, Lendrum served as a Field Biologist across the western United States conducting research on a variety of species, including examining the food habits and movement patterns of grizzly and black bears in Wyoming, winter survival and cause specific mortality of mule deer in Colorado, abundance and distribution of mesocarnivores in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California, and insect inventories in interior Alaska. Though Patrick has worked with creatures both great and small, his true passion lies in the ecology of large carnivores.
