About Amaroq Weiss
Amaroq Weiss, West Coast Wolf Organizer for the Center for Biological Diversity, coordinates campaigns for the restoration and protection of wolf populations in California, Oregon and Washington, and also works to maintain protections for wolves at the federal level. A biologist and former attorney, Amaroq has worked for 19 years for wolf conservation in the Pacific West, Northern Rockies, Southwest and Alaska. She was an appointed stakeholder that helped Oregon develop its state wolf plan, and was similarly a stakeholder-advisor in California’s process to craft its state wolf plan. She has testified at state, federal and county hearings about wolves, successfully argued the administrative petition to fully protect wolves under California’s state endangered species act, and given countless public presentations about this charismatic species.
Amaroq routinely acts as ground support in wolf–related litigation and science matters for the Center for Biological Diversity, is a regularly invited speaker at the annual Public Interest Environmental Law Conference, given interviews on NPR radio programs including KCRW’s Which Way L.A.? with Warren Olney and KQED’s Forum with Michael Krasny; and was a panelist on the Idaho Public Television Broadcasting program, Predators in the West, which aired in five western states. She is a contributing author and editor of multiple publications including Making Room for Recovery: The Case for Maintaining Endangered Species Act Protections for America’s Wolves (2014), Social and Ecological Benefits of Restored Wolf Populations (2007), Places for Wolves (2007), Places for Grizzly Bears (2007), Livestock and Wolves: a Guide to Nonlethal Tools and Methods to Reduce Conflicts (2008), and Social and Ecological Benefits of Restored Wolf Populations (2008). She also appears in two recent documentaries about California’s first known wild wolf in 87 years, “OR7 – The Journey” and “The OR-7 Expedition.”
Amaroq holds a BS from Iowa State University, an MS from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a JD from the University of California Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco. In her spare time, Amaroq enjoys urban dryland trail mushing with her two Siberian huskies, Miranda and Taiga.
