Beginning in October 2009 to the present Bill Leikam, President & CEO has conducted unprecedented, groundbreaking field research on the behavior of the gray fox (Urocyon cinereoargenteus). He is on the Board of Directors for Guadalupe-Coyote Resource Conservation District. Bill has many accomplishments to his name including being a published live jazz reviewer for All About Jazz, contributed to the field guide Canids of the World by Dr. Jose Castello, published by the Princeton University Press, been written about in Beth Pratt’s book When Mountain Lions are Neighbors, and has been written about in varied magazines and news articles. In 1981 he was a Delegate to the People’s Republic of China based on his research into the nature of consciousness. Chief Dan George of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, British Columbia wrote, “If you talk to the animals they will talk with you and you will know each other.  If you do not talk to them you will not know them, and what you do not know you will fear. What one fears one destroys.”
