Hunter Trapper Wildlife Toxicology Study

Working with the community of Fort McKay, I am providing knowledge translation services for a study on the toxicological burden of wildlife trapped in the Traditional Territory.

Fundamentals of Environmental Monitoring

In partnership with Sustainability Resources Ltd and the Canadian Oil Sands Innovation Alliance, in the fall of 2014 we offered courses on Environmental Monitoring for non-scientists. Environmental Monitoring Programs are essential for assessing the effects of development on the environment and linking environmental health to policy and management. In order to be effective, a good monitoring program requires not only sound scientific rationale but the participation and endorsement of stakeholders who also have an interest in environmental quality. Multi-stakeholder groups are often tasked with setting monitoring priorities and providing input into the monitoring design. This process can be contentious, and frustrating for those without a monitoring background.
