Anchorage-Area Wildlife Biologist Retires

Annie Feidt, APRN – Anchorage

Anchorage’s area wildlife biologist has retired. Rick Sinnott started with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in 1982 and has held the Anchorage position for more than 15 years. It’s been a challenging job. Anchorage is the biggest city in the world that boasts a metropolitan mix of brown and black bears, moose and other unusual urban wildlife. It’s been Sinnott’s job to preserve harmony between all of the city’s residents- wild and human.

A few years ago, APRN’s Annie Feidt produced a profile of Sinnott and his unusual work life. In honor of his retirement, we pulled the story from our archives.

That story was from the APRN archives. Rick Sinnott retired as the Anchorage area biologist at the end of June.
