Equity and Diversity

We recognize that conservation biology must become a more inclusive discipline.

In particular, the voices and rights of Indigenous peoples have been neglected and sometimes suppressed by ‘conservationists’. Wherever we can, we will look for opportunities to learn from and collaborate with Indigenous partners from Canada and elsewhere.

We also recognize that the voices of Black, Brown and other racialized people have been underrepresented in conservation, as have the voices of women, LGBTQ2S+ people and people with disabilities. And we recognize that many people from these and other groups can face financial disadvantages. Carleton University, the Biology Department and our lab provide scholarships and stipends for students, so they can pursue their studies without financial hardship.

We want to be part of positive change. People from all underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply for positions, and to reach out for collaboration opportunities.
