Chris Schadler, MS, MA - New Hampshire & Vermont Representative & Wild Canid Ecologist
Beginning in the early 1990's, Chris taught Conservation Issues and Wolf Ecology at the University of New Hampshire, receiving many teaching excellence and student recognition awards. She continues to instruct and mentor adult degree candidates in the UNH System at Granite State College.
While wolf recovery was the focus of her early work, Chris' attention shifted to the eastern coyote when she moved to New England. She chose a farm with known coyote problems to raise sheep and train her border collies. Using sound livestock management and common sense, she has avoided any predation for nearly two decades. A peaceful co-existence between coyote and livestock has grown an attentive audience for humane management.
Chris continues her work of the last 30 years. She divides her time between teaching on the New Hampshire Seacoast, and working on her book "Becoming Wolf: The Eastern Coyote in New England". Between presentations she can be found at camp in northern New Hampshire tracking coyotes, howling for wolves or leading treks into Canada to study wild canids.

Chris Schadler is a member of the Coyote Project, which promotes coexistence between humans and coyotes. Schadler was among a group who recently spoke in Holmesville.
Contrary to popular belief, hunting coyotes in an effort to reduce their population in fact pressures them to breed more, an American biologist said recently at a discussion in Holmesville.
Chris Schadler, a New Hampshire-based biologist and sheep farmer, and AnnaMaria Valastro are members of Project Coyote, which works to advocate coexistence between people and wildlife.

Chris Schadler, an Environmental Conservation professor at UNH, provides instruction to a student during class.
Chris Schadler, of the Department of Natural Resources, who teachers Environmental Conservation Issues (EC535), is setting an example for her students.She is practicing what she preaches by creating a class that is completely sustainable, relying on recycled textbooks and the Internet.
Instead of continuing to rely on textbooks that go into new editions every few years, wasting paper with their small changes, Schadler has developed her own book that puts into use the sustainability practices that her class teaches.
Run you're hands along the edge of the book, called "Understanding Global Environmental Problems: And Our Role as Stewards of a Fragile Planet," and you will feel stiff recycled paper for two-thirds of the way followed by slippery glossy pages for the rest.
The glossy pages are used chapters that were ripped out of textbooks that would have been thrown away otherwise.The publishers agreed to print the rest of the book on recycled paper using soy-based ink.The book's soft cover also uses fewer resources.
"My concern is conserving paper and making EC 535 as sustainable as it can be," Schadler said.
The publishers of the book, Person Custom Publishing, approached Schadler last February about putting her own book together since the book she was currently using was going into a new edition.
"Because I have so many students, [the publishers] see a dollar sign," said Schadler."They asked if I wanted to put a book together in the order that I wanted.I came up with a plan."
Schadler said she does not have time to write now, but instead put together a variety of readings from different books.
She explained the first part of the book as readings from other sources.The second part is made up of eight or nine chapters from a used environmental science textbook that Schadler had been using for her classes.These chapters cover the topics that are covered in the class, giving students a background in facts so they can make their own opinions.
"Naturally, Chris's [Schadler] book does a significantly better job of tying together the material she covers in lecture with the material from the readings."
Responding to how the book was put together, Jessica Nightingale, a sophomore, said she is impressed that Schadler made the book.
"It plays a big part in the good message she is trying to get across," she said."It was good of her to make sure it was [made sustainable]."
Sophomore Mary Beth Hallworth found that the book and class "compliment each other."
This is the first semester that the book is being used.Schadler's plan is to continue using the book for three or four years, relying on students selling them back.
Schadler said she would like to write her own book but doesn't think it will happen for another two years at least.
"Once my dissertation is written I would like to write a text just the way I want it," she said.
When Schadler began teaching EC 535, nine years ago, there were no discussion labs for the class and about 350 students took the class each semester.She has enlarged the scope of the class as she made it her own.
Now there are 570 students in two lecture sections that meet every Tuesday and Thursday.There are also 39 labs where students complete action projects that promote the classes' mission in the community.
To keep from using too much paper in making 570 copies of each handout, EC 535 is also on Blackboard.This also allows students to e-mail Schadler questions and for her to post the syllabus and assignments online.Since the beginning of the year, there have been 48,000 hits on the site.
"It's great," Schadler said."There are no paper exchanges."
According to Schadler "recycling former students" as lab leaders adds to the sustainability of the class and is a great opportunity overall.
This is how Schadler prefaces her own example of the practices that she teaches.
