Dr. Jenny Campbell is the Zoology Coordinator for the Department of Biological Sciences at NC State University and a teaching professor. Growing up, she went to sleep every night with a dog on her bed and knows the comfort humans derive from their companion animals. After working with elephants, right whales, red wolves, and lemurs, she now focuses her attention on the human-animal relationship as a professor at NC State University.
Roland Kays started studying animals in a physics class. He thought he wanted to work in a genetic engineering lab but thought better of it when he saw a film about a zoologist peering into prairie dog mounds looking for burrowing owls. He switched his major to zoology and fell in love with mammals. Today, he keeps tabs on thousands of mammals in their natural habitats with the aid of new technology and citizen volunteers at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences.
