How To Work With Local Governments To Get Scientific Findings Into Policy

April 17, 2019 - 3:00pm
Location: 
UBC-Okanagan Campus

Graduate Research Seminar- Wednesday April 17th, UNC 334 – 3:00 PM

Dr. Colla is a classically trained Ecologist using scientific to address real-world conservation issues. Her research has focused on the conservation of lesser understood native species such as bees, butterflies and flowering plants. As pollinators and pollination have become important issues among policymakers and the public in recent years, her work has become more interdisciplinary.

She works closely with environmental NGOs, landowners, academic partners and government agencies at the municipal, provincial and federal levels to implement conservation management based on the best available science. Her research considers species with large ranges across the US and Canada but also local species which are at-risk here in Ontario.
