Meet a Wildlifer

Our May edition of the Alberta Wildlifer included an interview of Dr. Peter Neuhaus, by feature editor Erika Almási-Klausz. Dr. Neuhaus is an adjunct professor in the Biogeoscience Institute at the University of Calgary and an ecologist extraordinaire.

If you haven’t seen it yet, you should really take a few moments to read about Peter’s career, his thoughts on research and ethics. He has broad interests, studying social and population biology, behavioural and evolutionary ecology. Today his focal species is the Columbian ground squirrel. But he has studied many more species around the world in many different ecosystems. Erika’s interview is a peek into a fascinating life.

We invite you to read the interview in full in our new newsletter format hosted by Adobe Spark. In it, Peter describes his research and expresses a vulnerability that we often feel, but rarely expose. Its a great read. And, if you don’t want to wait months to see what the ACTWS is up to, join us.
