Many of you know Dr. Corey Scobie as the Assistant Curator of Ornithology at the Royal Alberta Museum. He’s worked all over the province, inspiring biologists young and old alike through the RAM’s exhibits, outreach and education.
But back in 2003, Corey was an undergraduate in the Conservation Biology Program at the University of Alberta. That year, burdened by the financial pressures of university, he was the very grateful recipient of the ACTWSs Ian Ross Memorial undergraduate scholarship.
Fourteen years later, Corey is still at it. Passionate about prairie bird conservation, outreach and research, Corey looks back at the help the ACTWS provided as one of the keys that allowed him to focus on his academic and professional development.
