Conservation science from Yellowstone to Yukon (current)
I'm the Conservation Scientist for Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (Y2Y), based in Canmore, Alberta. I work with a terrific group of conservation scientists, practitioners, and communicators to connect and protect habitat across the Y2Y region so that people and nature can thrive. Some of my projects include a) synergies and tradeoffs among renewable energy, biodiversity, and connectivity, b) land-use planning, c) Pathway to Canada Target 1, d) Indigenous-led conservation and protected areas, and e) coexistence between people and wildlife.
