Conservation scientists make interesting finds in Maritimes in 2014

Okay - this is a public patting of themselves on the back. But that does not mean that their backs don't deserve patting. Lots of interesting science going on, and I always like to hear about science in, from, or concerning Atlantic Canada - it somehow seems like we don't hear enough of it.

Executive director of the conservation data centre Sean Blaney applauded the work of his staff, who have a broad range of expertise in the areas of botany, zoology, landscape ecology and forestry and who gather data that is essential in helping to protect the natural environment.
