Canadian Wildlife - - ENGAGE WITH CWF -

De­scribed by one nom­i­na­tor as “the pub­lic re­la­tions per­son for wildlife in New Brunswick,” Jim Wilson has worked tire­lessly for decades in­form­ing peo­ple and in­spir­ing them to get in­volved in na­ture. An avid birder, he has played a cen­tral role in ad­vanc­ing the knowl­edge of birds in the prov­ince, from con­duct­ing noc­tur­nal owl sur­veys and co-au­thor­ing bird at­lases to es­tab­lish­ing the Point Lepreau Bird Ob­ser­va­tory, a source of in­valu­able data on seabird mi­gra­tion used by aca­demics and re­searchers all over the world.
