The Dan Pletscher Fund


In January 2012, Wildlife Biology alumni launched a fundraising effort to endow a fund in Dan Pletscher's name. Dan Pletscher will retire on June 30th, 2013 after nineteen years of succesfully leading the Wildlife Biology Program as Director.Dan

The Dan Pletscher Fund combines alumni, faculty, and donor engagement with support of current graduate and undergraduate students, a top priority for the Program. 

Dan Pletscher’s legacy is and will continue to be his impact on students. If you are an alumnus of the program, the University, or simply have an interest in wildlife research, please consider making a gift. By supporting The Dan Pletscher Fund, your impact on future Wildlife Biology students, and the work they will do to inform conservation, is immeasurable.
