Dennis Jorgensen has worked for WWF as a senior program officer in the Northern Great Plains since 2007. Hired as the programs first field biologist he was based in the northern Montana prairies for five years where he gained valuable knowledge of the place, the people, and the wildlife. Dennis holds a Master’s Degree in Environmental Science from the University of Calgary and completed his Master’s thesis on the migrations of prairie rattlesnakes in Alberta. He manages WWF’s bison restoration initiative in the Northern Great Plains, which will support the establishment of five herds of at least 1,000 bison on tribal and public protected areas by 2020 to ensure the conservation and long-term health of the species. In 2013 Jorgensen was elected vice-chair of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) North American Bison Specialist Group and is currently participating in the IUCN Red-List assessment of the status of North American Bison.
