Who We Are and Our Philosophy

In the world of wildlife conservation, there are countless incredible organizations working tirelessly on different fronts to protect Earth’s few remaining wild spaces from human development. When we visualize wildlife conservation, it is easy to think only of these distant battles to protect animals in wide-open lands. As a result, the wildlife that could not be protected from human development is often forgotten about.

We have identified a need to offer the same tireless protection for the animals that live close to human development that we offer the wildlife within our National Parks and preserves.

With 20+ years of experience working in wildlife management and research, it has become clear that one of the most common obstacles preventing successful wildlife management is insufficient funding. This is why we have created this 501(c)(3) organization, to create an avenue for the general public to donate in support of an exciting new era of wildlife conservation research through BWCS. Our nonprofit organization is committed to providing underfunded wildlife management and research projects with professional specialists. The results from these projects will help shape sustainable wildlife management actions that better conserve wildlife populations.

Jason Knight

Hounds Man &
Capture Specialist

Jason’s interest in wildlife began as a young child, growing up as an outdoorsman in the mountains of western Colorado. In 1992 he found what was to become a lifelong passion – raising hounds to trail and capture large carnivores. Throughout the past 25 years, he has worked tirelessly at mastering the art of hound capture by treeing several hundred mountain lions, bobcats, and black bears. In 2008, after recognizing the need to conserve these carnivores, he began to offer his skills at catching mountain lions to a local wildlife researcher and began working on the Uncompahgre Puma project. Since then, he has worked collaring mountain lions and black bears with several carnivore researchers, and has become a highly skilled and respected capture specialist. Most recently, he has focused his attention on helping co-found both BODHI Expeditions and BODHI Wildlife Conservation Specialists.

Brady Dunne

Biologist &
Capture Specialist

Brady has been fortunate to have been working on carnivore research since 2000.  His initial experience working with Canada lynx motivated him to acquire his formal education in wildlife at the University of Montana. Even before finishing his education he began working on carnivore research projects, and has more than 15 years of experience working with Canada lynx, wolverines, black/grizzly bears, mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, and grey wolves. His most recent efforts in contributing to carnivore conservation has been to help co-found both BODHI Expeditions (North American photo safari) and BODHI Wildlife Conservation Specialists. Through these cutting-edge organizations he hopes to help usher in an exciting new era of carnivore conservation.
