Marcus Mueller, Master's Candidate
Born and raised in Milwaukee, WI, Marcus has always been interested in urban wildlife. While attending UW-Stevens Point and studying Wildlife Ecology, he spent two summers working in Milwaukee at the Wildlife Center at the Wisconsin Humane Society, a wildlife rehab center focused on Milwaukee wildlife. After spending the next two years working for the Wisconsin DNR Deer Research Project, Marcus spent a summer working for the Milwaukee County Parks Natural Areas team focused on inventorying Milwaukee County wildlife populations. An opportunity to study urban wildlife at the graduate level brought him to UW-Madison, where he is studying the competitive interactions between foxes and coyotes in the Madison area.
