I love sharing the work that Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative and our >450 partners do across the massive Y2Y region. Discussing research and conservation at universities, government agencies, and in public venues is fun and a great way to get feedback. But giving talks often involves travel by air or vehicle, which means greenhouse gas emissions...
That's why I was so pleased to join York University's Interdisciplinary Conservation in Canada seminar series, held entirely online in Winter 2020. Links to my talk are below, and please check out the other speakers -- from birds and caribou to plants and climate change. .
We had technical challenges - like the white box in Part 1 that says MIKE - so bear with me.
I talk to a lot of people who want to work in conservation-related science, practice, or policy. These careers can be so exciting, intellectually challenging, and deeply fulfilling.
But it can also be difficult to know where to start or how to integrate various interests, skills, and experiences in these jobs.
This blog post explains a bit about my career path to becoming the Conservation Scientist at Y2Y. I talked about it during an interview with the Best of the WWEST podcast, too.
