About

Karen has an MSc. from the University of Guelph on habitat use of the long-toed salamander around Hinton AB. After her Msc. she worked on various projects that ranged from studies on small mammals (voles, mice, chipmunks) and song birds to mountain goats and caribou. She has been working for the FRI Grizzly Bear Program since 2003.
