Annie Little “Island Foxes”
March 21, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
National Park Service’s Annie Little will be speaking on the topic “Island Foxes”
The island fox only lives on six of the eight Channel Islands off the coast of southern California – they cannot be found anywhere else on Earth.
In 1999, Channel Islands National Park began an island fox recovery program that included captive breeding and reintroduction of foxes, removal of resident golden eagles, re-establishment of bald eagles, and removal of non-native ungulates. This coordinated, organized and highly focused strategy was able to reverse the certain extinction of an endangered population.
For 23 years, Annie Little has worked as a Wildlife Biologist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. She transferred to the National Park Service about a year ago.
Annie’s focus is the conservation of unique island ecosystems, including eradication and control of invasive species, biosecurity, habitat restoration, and re-establishment of native species.
She graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a B.S. in Biology: Ecology, Behavior, and Evolution.
