Aimee McIntyre, M.S.
Wildlife Biologist

Aimee McIntyre joined the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife in 2004 and has since focused her research activities on issues related to stream-associated amphibians in headwater streams. She has been studying amphibian ecology for over 10 years, working previously for Utah State University and the U.S. Forest Service studying amphibians and recovery of lands impacted by the 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens. She received her M.S. in Wildlife Biology from Oregon State University in 2003 where she focused on habitat associations of the Van Dyke’s Salamander in the Cascade Range of Washington State.

Aimee’s current work focuses on research designed to assess the effectiveness of riparian buffers along non-fish-bearing streams in western Washington. Aimee has been on the board for the Society for Northwestern Vertebrate since 2005 and is currently the Vice President for the Washington Region. She is also the co-lead for the Inventory Task Team for Northwest Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (NW PARC). She was a member of the Green Diamond Scientific Advisory Team from 2006 – 2009. Aimee enjoys volunteering time to educating folks about amphibians and issues in amphibian conservation, and has supervised numerous college students in internships designed to provide experiences with hands-on ecological field sampling.
