Chris Anchor has been a long-term partner, supporter, and teacher with the Cook County Coyote Project. When he began with the project in 2000, it was already in a way running based on years of observations from him and others from his team at the Forest Preserve District of Cook County, IL. Through his understanding of many wildlife species, he offers our research the advantage of a broad scope covering multiple elements of wildlife study. He is the "go-to" person to identify any number of rare wildlife species or provide extensive insight to a challenging research initiative. Knowingly (or unknowingly) he has tutored both the new and the experienced, helping our project in the goal of educating scientists in the making. Anchor has been with the FPDCC since 1981 and in his current position since 1986.
