Dr. Susan Kutz


Susan Kutz is a Veterinarian and a Professor in the Department of Ecosystem and Public Health at the University of Calgary Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Alberta, Canada. She has devoted over two decades of her life to wildlife health research in the Arctic and Subarctic. Her areas of expertise include wildlife parasitology, disease ecology, ecosystem health, arctic ecology, climate change, and community-based wildlife health surveillance with a focus on caribou and muskoxen. She works with local communities to monitor, understand, and predict the impacts of a warming Arctic on the health of muskox and caribou populations and the consequent effects on food security in the Arctic.

Check out her new book Reindeer and Caribou Health and Disease, co-edited with Dr. Morten Tryland
