Garry hails from Sackville, New Brunswick where he manages activities for migratory birds and protected areas for the Atlantic unit of the Canadian Wildlife Service. Overseeing monitoring and conservation programs in Atlantic Canada and the management of 11 National Wildlife Areas and 15 Migratory Bird Sanctuaries in Atlantic Canada fill most of his time.
When not at the office, Garry enjoys swimming, cycling, running, paddling his SUP, photography and exploring his new home in the Maritimes.
This will be Garry’s ninth Arctic expedition with Students on Ice and he is excited to explore ideas about nature and conservation with students and staff. There is lots to learn about the distribution of marine birds in the Arctic so Garry hopes you will join him on the bridge to help with surveys!
