Lisa “Buffalo Annie” has been working in wildlife conservation since college. Through her work with federal and state agencies, tribal programs, and private entities throughout the United States, she has embarked on many ventures with a myriad of wildlife species. Some of her most memorable moments have been spent with bears, birds of prey, bison, coyotes, elk, mountain lions, and wild horses!
Her journeys to remote and rugged areas, encompassing desert, marshland, mountain, prairie, woodland, and island habitats, have provided experiences filled with culture, history and outdoor adventure.
She received her nickname while working as a wildlife field biologist for a Lakota Sioux tribe in South Dakota, where she helped with numerous tribal buffalo roundups. “Buffalo Annie” was the roundup crew’s creative combination of Annie Oakley’s shooting abilities and Lisa’s interest in buffalo.
Lisa continues with her passions in the wildlife field and looks forward to future career goals, outdoor pursuits, and travels.
