My research and teaching focus on conservation biology, particularly conservation of mammals. I am collaborating with Nature Alberta to determine whether Franklin’s ground squirrel in Alberta is an endangered species. I am also exploring whether it matters how we talk about conservation biology in undergraduate classrooms. I want to know if students feel more empowered to take action if we focus on success stories in conservation rather than just discussing the challenges we face.
