Sarah King

sarah-king-picSarah King is currently PI or co-PI of several research projects on feral horses and burros at NREL, in collaboration with colleagues at USGS. Originally from Britain, Sarah gained her B.Sc. and Ph.D. from Queen Mary, University of London. Her Ph.D. was one of the first studies on the behavioral ecology of Przewalski’s horses after their reintroduction to the wild in Mongolia. After conducting research on the endangered Mt. Graham red squirrel in Arizona, Sarah returned to Mongolia to run a conservation program for the Zoological Society of London. She then was based in France as project manager of Association Takh with frequent trips to a Przewalski’s horse reintroduction site in western Mongolia. In addition to research, her work in Mongolia involved working with communities and students to conserve wildlife through capacity building, production of books and guides, and further education. As coordinator of the Equid Red List for the IUCN Sarah has facilitated new Red List assessments of all equid species, requiring regular communication with scientists around the globe. She has been nominated as co-chair of the IUCN Equid Specialist Group, awaiting appointment by the new SSC chair. This will continue Sarah’s involvement in international conservation work. In addition to working abroad Sarah has travelled extensively, including three months on a yacht assisting with surveys of the northern group of the Cook Islands. She very much enjoys living in Colorado, and exploring the country with her dog.
