Laramie -

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department welcomes Embere Hall as the new wildlife coordinator for the Laramie Region. Hall replaces Corey Class, who transferred to Cody.

Hall was born in Cicero, Indiana, and attended Hamilton Heights High School. Her love of the outdoors led her into wildlife work. “I've always been curious about the natural world, and why things are the way they are,” Hall said. “Wildlife biology let me marry my interest in science with the place where I’m happiest: outside.” 

She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Wildlife Ecology and Management from the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point. In 2005, she completed a Master’s degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Iowa State University.

Hall completed a PhD with the Wyoming Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit at the University of Wyoming in 2017, studying whether pikas can make changes in their behavior to cope with warming temperatures in their mountain habitats. After her PhD, she worked as a Postdoctoral Research Scientist with the Coop Unit where she completed a long-term demographic study on sagebrush songbirds. Prior to joining Game and Fish, Hall was the research director for the Wildlife Research Program at Teton Science Schools in Jackson Hole from 2008 to 2012. 

As the Laramie Region wildlife coordinator, Hall will oversee biology programs in the region, including coordinating the public process to set hunting seasons, enhancing research collaborations with the University of Wyoming, and participating in interagency work such as the Landscape and Vegetation Analysis in the Medicine Bow National Forest.

“I am excited to join a talented staff, and to contribute to the conservation of the Laramie Region’s incredible wildlife,” she said. “I look forward to broadening engagement with our public, including folks that don’t traditionally hunt or fish, and using science-based approaches to enhance what we know about the ecology and management of wildlife. And, of course, to spending time in the region’s diverse landscapes!” Hall and her husband, John, reside in Laramie.
