Kevin Kalasz

Kevin is the USFWS Coastal Program Coordinator for South Florida/Everglades. He develops partnerships to support and implement habitat restoration and science delivery projects on some of our most imperiled species and ecosystems. Working in South Florida has afforded him the opportunity to incorporate evaluating and mitigating the effects of sea level rise and other climate factors into his work and restoration projects. 

He has a strong interest in decision science and works to improve decision making in natural resources. He is also the Service’s state lead for red knots, black rails, and roseate terns. 

Prior to coming to the Service in 2016, Kevin spent more than a decade conducting research and monitoring on migratory shorebirds and marsh nesting birds in Delaware Bay, monitoring freshwater fish and mussels, and as a Program Manager for Delaware and Washington.  

He received his MS in Applied Ecology and Conservation Biology from Frostburg State University (MD).
