About the Author:

For over 37 years Rick has dedicated his life to conservation education. After working and living in national parks as a park ranger, research scientist and administrator, Rick developed a vision for an educational effort that would allow him to use his talents to promote the conservation of endangered species and related habitats in third world countries. In demonstrating his commitment to international conservation, in 1994 Rick sponsored an environmental education project in Zambia at North Luangwa National Park. Working closely with the Frankfurt Zoological Society and the Owens Foundation, Rick designed and published a 40 page environmental education guide for school children living near the park. In the years that followed his leadership skills have resulted in a number of noteworthy projects including ongoing efforts to help create a binational US/Mexico International Peace Park ans directing an award winning multi-media education program at Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalupe Mountains National Parks. Rick's writings have been published in park brochures and newspapers, trade journals and in nationally distributed magazines like Defenders of Wildlife and Texas Parks and Wildlife. During his tenure at Big Bend National Park his writings and other advocacy efforts helped to call attention to the status of rare mammals in the park including the endangered Mexican black bear population that began to re-colonize the park in 1988. As a result of his unrelenting efforts Rick's accomplishments have been recognized and honored by high-level government officials in the Department of the Interior and by Rotary International. In 2002 Rick became the Education Curator of the El Paso Zoo where he works on a wide variety of conservation projects both locally and regionally. Based in El Paso, Texas Rick oversees the direction of two important conservation education websites at iloveparks.com and chihuahuandesert.org.
