Conservation science from Yellowstone to Yukon
I'm a conservation scientist at the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (Y2Y). The Y2Y mission is "to connect and protect habitat from Yellowstone to Yukon so that people and nature can thrive".
I work with a terrific group of researchers, practitioners, and communicators, and >450 partner groups across the 1.36 million sqkm Yellowstone to Yukon region.
My projects include studying biodiversity and ecosystem services, protected area targets, supporting Indigenous-led conservation, the ecology and conservation of species at risk (e.g., wolverine, mountain caribou), outdoor recreation, and the human dimensions of conservation.
