Paul McCarney, conservationist and environmental social scientist
I’m a reader, writer, researcher, angler, and hunter. I grew up in the Toronto area and then spent many years living, working, and learning to hunt in the Kawartha Lakes region of Ontario. I am passionate about wildlife conservation and really enjoy archery. My work connects different communities of people in environmental research and conservation. My PhD research looks at perspectives and priorities around Arctic marine wildlife among Inuit communities, scientists, and managers. Through that work, I've spent some amazing time on water, ice, and land in Kugaaruk and Pangnirtung, Nunavut. I currently live in Nain, Nunatsiavut, Labrador with two great partners (one is a four-legged redbone hound and lab cross who loves to run around in the mountains). I work on marine planning with the Nunatsiavut Government and have the opportunity to bring together all of my interests into one great project with an amazing team of people.
