Wildlife Tracking Instructor: Joseph Litke
Joseph is a co-founder of Fiera Biological and a Sr. Biologist with over 25 years of experience working across western Canada and the United States, from Oregon to Yukon. Born into a family of hunters, fishermen, and fur trappers in the Athabasca region, Joseph has spent his life knee-deep and nose-to-the-ground in Alberta’s wild places, and this has given him a deep respect and enthusiasm for wildlife and their habitats.
Widely acknowledged as one of the most experienced wildlife trackers in Alberta, Joseph routinely uses his skills to document and monitor wildlife presence and habitat use through tracking, and he has an internationally recognized certification in wildlife track & sign interpretation from CyberTracker North America. Over the past decade, Joseph has shared his tracking expertise widely, having taught dozens of multi-day workshops and courses for wildlife professionals and outdoor enthusiasts from across Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. Joseph relishes these opportunities as he believes that humans are natural-born trackers, and he takes great joy awakening the inner tracker in all of his workshop participants.
