Congratulations to Zoe Todd, who has received a $250,000 grant from the New Frontiers in Research Fund. Zoe is Principal Investigator on the grant, “Plural perspectives on Bighorn Country: restor(y)ing land use governance and bull trout population health in Alberta.” She will work with Carleton and Athabasca University colleagues to develop an adaptable digital toolkit for storytelling about pressing environmental issues in Alberta’s Bighorn Country. Starting with a case study of the decline of the bull trout, researchers will work with artists, computer programmers, scientists, Indigenous knowledge keepers, journalists and other community stakeholders to study and communicate rapidly evolving environmental and species concerns, increase public appreciation for those species, and foster meaningful change to policy processes.
