A public lecture titled Salmon-fuelled Ecosystems of the Great Bear Rainforest is taking place at Memorial University.
Professor John Reynolds holds a Research Chair in Aquatic Conservation at Simon Fraser University. He has served in a variety of scientific advisory roles and is a member of the committee that examines the status of threatened species in Canada (COSEWIC), which makes recommendations for protection under Canada’s Species at Risk Act.
