Megan is an ecologist and Hakai-Raincoast scholar with the University of Victoria and the Raincoast Conservation Foundation. She currently studies bear-salmon-human systems on the central coast of British Columbia, pursuing conservation research that is applied and community driven. She is also a co-founder of the Sea to Cedar Initiative, which works to connect people to place through conservation and non-extractive economies in the southern Great Bear Rainforest. When she’s not out in the rainforest studying bears, Megan can be found up in the alpine at Mount Cain or on the trails of Cumberland’s incredible forests.
