Senior Director, Urban Wildlife Programs, the Humane Society of the United States
John Griffin oversees the HSUS wildlife’s department field and policy programs focused on implementing humane and effective solutions to wildlife conflicts across the country. This work includes consulting with—and providing trainings and resources for—animal care and control professionals, law enforcement, wildlife responders and state and municipal agencies. Griffin also assists with field coexistence and research programs as well as disaster response and wildlife rescue. For nine years, he ran the HSUS Humane Wildlife Services program, which provided conflict resolution services primarily through eviction and exclusion methods. From 2015-2016, Griffin was part of a National Geographic Expedition team exploring raccoon behavior in urban areas. He lives in Frederick, Maryland, with his wife, who is also an HSUS colleague, their young daughter, a cat named Rosie and a dog named Gracie—whom he met on deployment in Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
