Our students in British Columbia have hit the ground running! We've been busy hiking the local mountains, observing wildlife, conducting bird surveys and meeting community members. With these long summer days we're making the most of each day and it's hard to believe students have been here only a week. Next up: osprey surveys on Atlin Lake and more mountain exploration!
At the end of a long day at sea, the @wilddolphinproject anchors for dinner. But sometimes, the water is still alluring and I jump in for a last swim of the day. There were no fish or critters to photograph at this spot, so I turned my camera toward WDP summer intern @liahlm.
Surveying one of my favourite habitats today - cool Eastern Hemlock ravines. These gems are home to several forest birds at risk in Southwestern Ontario including Acadian Flycatcher and Louisiana Waterthrush.
