Jorge is a wildlife biologist who has worked in the Mexican Wolf Conservation Program since 1981. He is an active member of the Mexico-USA Binational group. He carried out the first behavioral studies of the Mexican wolf, and he conducted field surveys (1986 to 1996) looking for wild wolves in the mountains of northern Mexico. During 2007 and 2008, he led field evaluations to reintroduce wolves to the wild from the captive breeding program. Since 2010 he has continued to evaluate areas to reintroduce wolves in Durango, Mexico.
