Joe Guthrie, Wildlife Biologist
Joe Guthrie
Joe Guthrie is a wildlife biologist from Kentucky who moved to Florida to conduct research on the ecology and conservation of the Florida black bear. He wrote a masters thesis on the species relationship to roads and the function of wildlife corridors in facilitating connectivity in a fragmented bear population. After graduate school he was a co-leader of the 2012 Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition, a 100-day, 1000-mile hiking and paddling expedition from Florida Bay in Everglades National Park to the Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia. The expedition brought awareness for remaining ecological connections on both public and private lands that support wildlife populations and allow Florida's outdoor and agriculture economies to thrive. Joe currently works in a contractor role with the National Wildlife Refuge Association, leading efforts by the Northern Everglades Alliance, a group of conservation-minded ranchers and non-governmental conservation partners, to establish a new 150,000-acre National Wildlife Refuge. He lives and works at Archbold Biological Station in Highlands County, Florida.

Coach Joe Guthrie didn't stop traveling when his first official season ended. He went to Montgomery for the AHSAA Softball Tournament and to Birmingham for a showcase event. He made plans to attend tournaments in Georgia and Tennessee.
Guthrie's trips are part of the job in trying to attract talented players to Marion Military Institute, a member of the Alabama Community College Conference.
A former University of Kentucky and Alabama baseball player, the 30-year-old Guthrie was the first coach for MMI's first junior college softball program. With 16 freshmen MMI posted a 19-32-1 record. Guthrie said 15 players will return next season. One chose to go ahead and pursue a military career.
"You have to learn to be patient with freshmen," said Guthrie, a Tuscaloosa County High School graduate who served with the military in Iraq.
"I was elated," Guthrie said.
Guthrie said shortstop Lauren Lewis was "one of the top five best athletes I saw in the state."
"Lauren was one of our leading hitters, but she had kidney stone surgery in the middle of the season," Guthrie said.
Guthrie said Cereijo participated in softball with five MMI players from the Miamia area.
Guthrie described her as "one of the best high school hitters in Alabama this year."
Guthrie said Martinez is one of the top players in the Rio Grande Valley.
Guthrie was living and teaching in Florida when he found out about an MMI opening by cruising the Internet. He took over in June of 2007, and MMI officials gave him a year to establish his program.
Guthrie, who thought he might be coaching baseball, said he called Alabama softball coach Patrick Murphy for advice.
"I knew he had been in baseball at one time at the high school level," Guthrie said.
"We do everything except cut the grass," Guthrie said.
Guthrie started his college career at Kentucky before transferring to Bevill State. He earned an American studies degree from Alabama in 2001. As a senior he joined the Army National Guard. Guthrie got a master's degree from Jacksonville State and was commissioned as an officer.
He was stationed in Mosul in the northern part of Iraq.
"I would train Iraqi soldiers, and then in the middle of the day I would try to find a contractor to buy blankets and food for them," Guthrie said.
Guthrie returned to the United States in 2005 and got a job as a baseball coach at University Prep in Seattle, Wash. Guthrie and his wife, Gianna, moved to Florida when she got a job offer in Tampa. Guthrie worked as a physical education teacher at Canterburty in St. Petersburg.
A friend tipped him off about a scouting job with the Florida Marlins.
"There was always a game to go to," Guthrie said.
