Dr. King’s work focuses on how the behavioral ecology of mammals can inform their management and conservation. She applied this to the conservation of endangered species by examining the social behavior, home ranges, and habitat use of the Mount Graham red squirrel in Arizona, and Przewalski’s horses in Mongolia and France. Further work in Mongolia involved research on the habitat and wildlife and livestock using it, to inform an adaptive management plan for protection and restoration of the steppe. In collaboration with USGS, Dr. King lead research on the behavior, ecology, and demography of feral horses and burros in the American west. Through her position as co-chair of the IUCN/SSC Equid Specialist Group, Dr. King works with researchers to conserve endangered equids around the world. Additionally Dr. King is a professional animal trainer, offering training and behavior support for dogs and horses.
