Wildlife conservation in North America is based on a property right which holds that the wild animals of a state or province are owned by the people of that state or province. A necessary corollary of this principle is the idea that animals are things that can be owned. Tim Van Deelen will examine this ideal in light of recent controversies over wildlife conservation in the Great Lakes region and recent scholarship on Christian approaches to Creation Care.
Tim Van Deelen is a professor of wildlife ecology in the Department Forest and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Wisconsin. He teaches Animal Populations Dynamics and conducts research on the population biology of large mammals. Prior to joining the UW faculty in 2004, Tim worked (2000 – 2004) as a research wildlife ecologist for the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources and a research wildlife ecologist for the Illinois Natural History Survey (1995 – 2000). In Illinois, Tim held adjunct and joint assistant professorship with the Dept. of Natural Resources and Environmental Studies at U. of I. Urbana-Champaign. Tim earned his graduate degrees from Michigan State University (Ph.D., Wildlife Ecology 1995) and the University of Montana (M.S. Wildlife Biology 1991). He is a 1988 graduate of Calvin College (Biology),and grew up near Jamestown, Michigan.
