Flavio Sutti is the manager of the Wildlife Care Department at Mass Audubon's Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary in Lincoln. At Wildlife Care he oversees the care of 35 species of non-releasable native wildlife including many raptors and songbirds.
Both in the US and Europe, Flavio worked with and studied wildlife in different habitats—raptors, ungulates, and grouses in Northern Italy; European beavers in England; sage grouse in Wyoming; warblers in the New Hampshire hardwood forest; and grassland and other birds in the Champlain Valley of Vermont. He has led natural history trips in Northern Italy discovering the geology, flora, and fauna of the alpine zone, and to Tuscany exploring sustainable farming and birding.
He graduated from the University of Milan (Italy) with a bachelor's degree in Natural Science and earned both a master's and a Ph.D. in Wildlife Biology from the University of Vermont. For several years in Vermont, Flavio performed bird point counts and nest searching and monitoring for his graduate research.
