If you’ve been following Clayton Lamb’s career since 2014, the year he was awarded the Bill Wishart Scholarship, then you might be forgiven for thinking that he has recently been granted tenure. His award-winning (TWS paper of the year!) work has been published in top journals and has been widely covered in the media. He’s everywhere!
In reality, since being awarded the Chapter’s Post-Graduate scholarship, he has been busy finishing his PhD on carnivore-human coexistence. Significantly, his research has moved the carnivore conservation needle in British Columbia. It is being applied to reduce human-wildlife conflict due to inappropriate roadkill disposal and to locate wildlife overpasses.
With that work all but defended, Clayton has begun his post-doctoral work with the Canadian Mountain Network on indigenous led caribou conservation. If his past is any indication, his future looks very promising.
