Matt Holloran Ph.D.

Dr. Holloran has served as principal investigator, field supervisor, and/or research collaborator on research projects addressing various aspects of sage-grouse, sagebrush ecosystem, and sagebrush obligate wildlife species ecology and management in Wyoming since 1996.  His research emphasis has included:  greater sage-grouse ecology, greater sage-grouse population response to energy development, livestock grazing and greater sage-grouse habitat suitability, habitat management planning to mitigate greater sage-grouse declines, predator-productivity relationships, implications of West Nile virus to greater sage-grouse populations, and sagebrush rangeland function, health and management. 

Wyoming Wildlife Consultants, LLC (WWC) specializes in the biological sciences. Our areas of expertise include: wildlife ecology and management, ecologically-based invasive plant management, wildlife habitat management, wetland and riparian sciences, soil science, and rangeland ecology and management.

WWC is the recognized private industry leader in greater sage-grouse ecology and management. Our experience spans investigations into sage-grouse response to various livestock grazing practices, sagebrush habitat enhancement projects, wind energy and fluid mineral development. Our perspective incorporates rigorous, transparent and defensible project design, and includes the most current research.  Our research goal is to provide insights and expand the collective understanding of how to enhance sage-grouse populations given the multiple use of western rangelands.  

WWC is currently involved with the development of several mitigation projects for sage-grouse, providing expertise for state-wide efforts in Wyoming, Colorado and Nevada, as well as the innovative Payment for Ecological Services system being explored in Sublette County, Wyoming. In addition we serve as science advisors for the Wyoming Sage-grouse Implementation Team.
