Field Biologist

Tori Thorpe


Tori obtained an M.S. in Environmental Studies with a concentration in Environmental Management and Conservation after completing her B.S. in Environmental Science. Tori’s background includes working with critically endangered, threatened, and species of concern with universities and federal, state, and non-profit organizations. Exposure to working with many organizations on various projects has provided Tori with a wealth of invaluable field skills and experience.

Tori started with HWI as a crew member during the 2017 fall migration season and has since worked two more seasons of migration and as a technician on our Eagle Vehicle Strike Project. Tori now supports the work of the Conservation Science department. Her main focus now is a project examining Golden Eagle predation of Greater Sage-grouse near Vernal, Utah. This project is also the focus of her M.S. in Ecology at Utah State University. 

In her free time, Tori enjoys spending time with friends and two pet quail, wildlife photography, hiking, and camping.
