Craig Knowles, PhD & Pamela Knowles, M.S – Townsend, MT 406-439-0191

We have been engaged in wildlife consulting since 1983 and have the capability to accomplish small projects in-house with very reasonable rates. For larger projects, we partner with other independent wildlife consultants and/or larger consulting firms to match the expertise and necessary personnel with project requirements.

We have extensive experience with wildlife throughout Montana, as well as the northern Great Plains, the Black Hills of South Dakota, Wyoming, and the Mojave Desert. As such we have considerable expertise with the black-tailed prairie dog ecosystem, bison, raptors, and desert tortoises, as well as a wide variety of wildlife in the western US.
