Dr. James K. Ringelman Director of Conservation Programs - ND - SD - MT

Dr. Ringelman began his career as a waterfowl biologist in 1975, when he commenced his graduate studies on duck brood behavior and visibility at South Dakota State University. Since that time he has been a practicing waterfowl researcher, conservation biologist, and program administrator. His doctoral research on the breeding ecology of the black duck in Maine was the first attempt to quantify habitat use by this elusive species using radio telemetry. After his work in Maine, Dr. Ringelman began his research career with the Colorado Division of Wildlife's research group in Fort Collins. There he studied duck breeding and wintering ecology in a host of ecosystems - from high elevation montane systems, to the wetland complexes of Colorado's intermountain basins, to the riparian habitats of the Platte and Arkansas River systems. Jim was also an affiliate faculty member in the Department of Fishery and Wildlife Biology at Colorado State University, where he served on several graduate committees. Later in his career with the CDOW, he became the Avian Research Leader, administered the state duck stamp program, created and managed the Colorado Wetlands Initiative, and served as the State Waterfowl Biologist through his role in the Central Flyway. Dr. Ringelman began his career with Ducks Unlimited in 1996. He helped develop a diverse program at the Great Plains Regional Office that included new land protection and easement programs, GIS and research capabilities, and enhanced programs in Colorado, Nebraska, and Minnesota. Today, Jim manages all facets of DU's conservation programs in the heart of the U.S. Prairie Pothole Region - the Dakotas and Montana. He continues to focus on new ways to achieve waterfowl conservation benefits using the best available science, innovative approaches, and practical programs that work for conservationists and landowners alike.

"Wildlife belongs to the public, yet private property - and therefore private landowners - really have all the habitat, so you have to work with them," explains Jim Ringelman, DU's Director of Conservation Programs for the Dakotas and Montana. DU has been working with private landowners for decades, developing tools and credibility.

"We could sample in one or two years a huge range of vintages," explains Ringelman.
"We need resources in the order of many tens of millions if not hundreds of millions to do what we need to get done," adds Ringelman.
I think that's not very far off," says Ringelman.
"Maybe the time's not far off that when someone does a project that's affecting wintering habitat and sparrows down there, they'll be coming to us (because) we can really have a population affect working with on this end of the flyway," says Ringelman.
