Dr. Nick Fuhrman is Professor of Environmental Education and a Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Professor in the Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education and Communication at the University of Georgia. Nick received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in forestry from Virginia Tech and his Ph.D. in agricultural education and communication, with a focus in environmental education program evaluation, from the University of Florida. Prior to entering graduate school, he was an environmental educator with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources for seven years where he used injured, non-releasable birds of prey and reptiles as teaching tools in public presentations. These presentations gave him opportunities to teach before large audiences and on television. The impact of using animals as teaching tools is a major focus of Nick’s research. Also known as “Ranger Nick,” his life’s passion is teaching and he often uses live animals (such as snakes, turtles, and owls) in the classroom and on his monthly national television series on RFD-TV, “Ranger Nick.” Nick is married to his best friend, Jessica, and they have two children, Miles and Ellis, and reside in Watkinsville, Georgia along with a small zoo of animal “teaching tools.”
