Jeffrey Froke

The Bird Rock Press
Retired Wildlife Biologist
Pebble Beach, CA
Greetings!  A real glutton for learning, I studied ornithology, wildlife biology, and conservation in college (B.S., M.S., Ph.D. / U. Hawaii, Humboldt State U., Scripps Institute of Oceanography, UCLA, and fellowship @ Harvard). I began my career as a CA State Park Ranger, later as a federal law enforcement officer (international wildlife smuggling), then worked 12 years for the National Audubon Society as a manager of the national wildlife sanctuary program; next to the Roger Tory Peterson Institute as President where in addition to educational programming, I led the development of RTPI's new museum and headquarters in Jamestown NY.  Returned to California to partner in the purchase of the 20,000-acre Rancho San Carlos near Carmel, transforming it to the Santa Lucia Preserve, and founding the nonprofit Santa Lucia Conservancy of which I was President.  Creature-wise, my favorite research specialties were Mexican Lilac-crowned Parrots, Mountain Lions, CA Red-legged Frogs, Black-crowned Night Herons; also the historic evolution of California's ranch landscapes.  Recently, after 45 years, I retired to teach, consult, and try again to paint, draw, and photograph wildlife -- and to finish writing my book on the birds of Pebble Beach and the Monterey Peninsula.  I always seem to be overloaded with too many nonprofit Boards, but am in the way otherwise.
