Lucyan David "Dave" Mech is an internationally recognized wolf expert, a senior research scientist for the U.S. Department of the Interior's U.S. Geological Survey (since 1970), and an adjunct professor at the University of Minnesota in St. Paul. He has researched wolves since 1958 in places such as Minnesota, Canada, Italy, Alaska, Yellowstone National Park, and on Isle Royale.

Mech is the founder of the International Wolf Center and sits on its Board of Directors as Vice Chair. The project to create the facility, which he started in 1985, was a natural outgrowth of his wolf research as well as his ambition to educate people about the nature of wolves that they may come to respect the creature through understanding.

“As I wrote in 2013, “In the medical field, when a threatening condition is detected that is not immediately causing distress, physicians often counsel ‘watchful waiting’. . . . [T]he precautionary principle would weigh heavily in favor of non-intervention because once intervention is imposed, that condition can never be undone, whereas non-intervention can always be countered by intervention.”
L. David Mech, Wolf Island: Discovering the Secrets of a Mythic Animal
