Wolf biologist Dick Thiel was raised in southeastern Wisconsin and became interested in the plight of wolves in his home state at age 13. He graduated with a B.S. in Natural Resources Management and Biology from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in 1975. In 1980 he was hired as the state's first wolf biologist - creating and managing Wisconsin's wolf recovery program from 1980 to 1990. Then serving at Sandhill Wildlife Area deer research facility as coordinator of an Outdoor Skills Education Center and retiring in 2011 after 33 years of service. Despite his career shift into wildlife education, he was responsible for Department of Natural Resources (DNR) wolf monitoring activities within Wisconsin's Central Forest Region from the time wolves first colonized there in 1994-95, and sat on the DNR's Wolf Technical Committee from its inception in the early 1990's to retirement.
