Roseanna Gamlen-Greene – Researchers Revealed


Researchers Revealed is an exciting new series profiling the research performed in UBC’s Biodiversity Research Centre. Produced by Philippe Roberge, the series looks at new ways in which researchers harness technology to study the natural world in ways that were not possible before.

Roseanna Gamlen-Greene is a PhD Candidate at UBC and National Geographic Explorer and researches conservation biology of amphibians on Haida Gwaii, British Columbia, Canada. Her work involves tromping around in beautiful bogs, sea kayaking, canoeing and boating to remote and wild locations, experiments and working with the local community to conserve the western toad (the only indigenous amphibian on Haida Gwaii).

Roseanna would like to acknowledge the support of the Council of the Haida Nation, many community members on Haida Gwaii, the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, BC Parks, Gwaii Haanas staff, National Geographic, the UBC Public Scholar Initiative, and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council. She expects to have finalized results for this research project in 2021.
