Garry Donaldson is a Canadian Wildlife Service biologist managing programs for migratory birds and protected areas in Atlantic Canada. Through the years he has worked as a wilderness guide, a lab technician, an Arctic field biologist, a scientific graphic designer and an international conservation coordinator among other fun jobs. Today, Garry’s job with the Canadian Wildlife Service is mostly carried out from behind a desk in Sackville, New Brunswick but he grabs every chance to escape on bird surveys or on visits to National Wildlife Areas. When not at work Garry enjoys exploring the eastern Canadian wilderness and takes a few photos from time to time. This will be his eleventh year with Students on Ice and, as always, is excited to travel to the Arctic to share his passion for birds and conservation with other expeditioners.
