Director of Wildlife Management
I have been with the Nunavik Marine Region Wildlife Board (NMRWB) for almost four years and am the Director of Wildlife Management. I live in Inukjuak with my partner and young daughter and son. I was fortunate to work with Nunavik communities during my graduate studies, where much of my research involved learning from the knowledge and experience that Inuit Elders and hunters have of beluga whales. I am deeply honoured and grateful for the privileged of working together with different partners and communities to improve our collective understanding of species and the environment that sustains us all.
The Director of Wildlife Management oversees all aspects of wildlife management including: review of scientific and technical submissions to the Board; providing scientific/technical advice to the Board; and directing and administering the NMRWB wildlife research responsibilities. The Director is also responsible for the management of the NMR Wildlife Research Fund (NMRWRF), as well as being the main person designated by the NMRWB to act on its behalf on various wildlife management committees and organizations.
