Garry Donaldson is a Canadian Wildlife Service biologist managing programs for migratory birds and 26 protected areas in Atlantic Canada. He grew up an Air Force brat living in a diversity of military communities across Canada. Perhaps influenced by time spent in places like Moose Jaw and Goose Bay, an eventual path towards wildlife biology seemed logical as most military bases contain wild areas where Garry explored woods and streams, surely influencing who he is today. Garry’s current job is mostly carried out from behind a desk in Sackville, New Brunswick but he enthusiastically grabs every chance to escape on bird surveys or visits to National Wildlife Areas. He dabbles in photography and enjoys exploring wild places in his spare time. Each summer Garry looks forward to travelling to the Arctic to share his passion for birds and conservation with others on Adventure Canada and Students on Ice expeditions.
