Dr. Peregrine Wolff
Wildlife Conservationist and Veterinarian
Nevada Department of Wildlife
Dr. Peregrine Wolff has worked with captive and free-ranging wildlife throughout her 30 plus-year veterinary career. After receiving her veterinary degree from Cornell University, she spent time at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, and the Minnesota Zoo before trading snow for sand and leading the animal health opening team of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. In the mid-2000’s she got the free-ranging wildlife bug and joined the fish and wildlife agency world where she spent 13 years chasing wild sheep and many other critters. After retiring from the Nevada Department of Wildlife she has taken on the role of Executive Manager for the Wildlife Disease Association.
As Nevada’s state wildlife veterinarian, Peregrine was involved in mountain ungulate disease research and conservation programs. She worked with agency biologists, managers and veterinarians across western states and provinces to develop standardized handling and welfare and disease testing protocols as well as conducting hands-on trainings for capture, handling, translocation, and disease investigation not only in wild sheep but also in desert tortoises.
Passionate about sharing her knowledge and advancing the field of conservation, wildlife medicine and welfare she has taught students and colleagues around the globe and volunteered her leadership skills and experience for numerous organizations and committees. She currently chairs the US Animal Health Association’s Committee on Wildlife and serves as a member of the IUCN Caprinae Specialist Group. In 2015 she was invited to serve on the board of directors the Wild Sheep Foundation (WSF) and for the past two-years has served as chair. She also acts as the disease lead for the WSF’s Conservation Committee and serves on several additional committees including Women Hunt and the 1 Campfire Initiative. Although not a hunter she believes in the conservation efforts of hunters and is interested in bringing hunters and non-hunters together to provide a loud voice for the benefit to humanity of wildlife and wild places.
