Karen C. Drayer Wildlife Health Center
Dr. Frankfurter is a wildlife veterinarian with the Karen C. Drayer Wildlife Health Center at University of California Davis. His work focuses on increasing global wildlife response capacity and readiness with an emphasis on marine mammal disaster response. Since receiving his veterinary degree from the University of California at Davis in 2012, he has worked with a variety of wildlife rehabilitation centers and research teams throughout North America and in New Zealand and Antarctica. His research interests include wildlife capture and field methods, and pinniped critical care techniques. Dr. Frankfurter enjoys finding novel uses for existing and emerging technologies to improve wildlife handling, care, and management (that is, tinkering with stuff). He will drop whatever he’s doing to go help pinnipeds.
