About Kaiti Ott

I'm a transplant from Wyoming, and came to Alaska for the first time in 2004, when I began my M.Sc. on lasting effects of the Exxon Valdez oil spill on coastal river otters in Prince William Sound and Kenai Fjords National Park. Field work in Southcentral Alaska set the hook and after grad school, I found short-term work in Utqiaġvik with the North Slope Borough’s Department of Wildlife Management on their bowhead whale census. The following year, I started as a Wildlife Biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in their newly opened Utqiaġvik office conducting outreach and managing a small mark-recapture lemming study. I moved to Fairbanks in 2011, and found permanent work with the Service's Northern Alaska Field Office where I lead the ESA section 7 regulatory twig of our Endangered Species Branch. Interior Alaska is home, and I am grateful to live, work, and play here.
