As Expedition Assistant, Brendan will be working alongside the Expedition Team to coordinate the Arctic 2020 Expedition and help students prepare for this once in a lifetime experience. Originally from Newfoundland & Labrador, Brendan recently moved to Ottawa in 2019 and is thrilled to be part of the SOI Team!
Brendan is an Alum of the 2012 SOI Arctic Expedition where he fell in-love with the Arctic. Since then, he has returned to the North multiple times to research Arctic-breeding shorebirds with the Canadian Wildlife Service.
After graduating from the Wildlife Conservation Program at the University of Prince Edward Island, Brendan worked for two seasons with the Island Nature Trust to help conserve and protect avian species at risk in PEI.
When not working, you can find Brendan watching or photographing wildlife, building nest boxes for birds, or educating the public about conservation issues and the environment.
