Lindsey Sanders



Originally from California, Lindsey received her B.S. from UC Berkeley in Environmental Science. Since graduating, Lindsey has worked on a variety of wildlife projects across the western US, including researching endangered piping plovers and least terns on the Missouri River, American pika habitat use in Wyoming’s Wind River mountains, Sierra Nevada red fox population distribution, and woodpecker habitat selection in burned forests of northern California.

Research Interest

Lindsey is a PhD student in the Fish and Wildlife Department at the University of Idaho, based in the Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit. She is interested in how anthropogenic disturbance affects wildlife population ecology, and is currently researching predator-prey dynamics in the sagebrush steppe across a gradient of natural gas development.
