Wildlife Conservation Society

David A. Oehler is the Curator of Ornithology for the Wildlife Conservation Society at the Bronx Zoo. His efforts at the WCS organization involve building on the strong commitment of animal care and conservation that has become synonymous with the WCS. A vital focus is being placed on conservation programs and imparting the importance of these programs within the WCS facilities, which include stemming the illegal trade of Congo African Grey Parrots, assessing Andean Condor populations throughout South America, conservation of endangered flamingo taxa, and others. David is embracing new technologies that will be incorporated into these husbandry and conservation efforts to improve the management of future programs.
