Save The Ringtails


Save the Ringtails and Contact Information

Save the Ringtails is a student-based project in the Department of Zoology at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah in the U.S.A. In several courses, such as Conservation Biology, students participate in civic engagement projects. During these assignments, they become informed citizens about a natural resources issue, from matters of local to global concern, and subsequently work toward effecting change based on their knowledge of this subject.

Save the Ringtails is a participant in Weber State University’s Center for Community Engaged Learning’s¬†effort to promote student-based philanthropy.

The Director of Save the Ringtails is Dr. Sam Zeveloff, Presidential Distinguished Professor in the Department of Zoology at Weber State University. He conducts research on mammalian ecology and conservation, and has studied raccoons, mountain goats, and pygmy rabbits. Dr. Zeveloff is the author of two books: Mammals of the Intermountain West and Raccoons, a Natural History. He is a member of the Small Carnivore Specialist Group of the Species Survival Commission of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.
