Michael is a M.Sc. student in the Wildlife Coexistence Laboratory at the University of British Columbia - Vancouver. Currently, he is deploying a grid of cameras over the southern regions of Golden Ears Provincial Park, as well as Malcolm Knapp Research Forest, with the hopes of gathering data on terrestrial mammal population distributions. This data will be observed in relation to anthropogenic influences, such as recreation and logging, in order to determine the effects humans are having on wildlife populations in the area. Michael's main interests are founded largely in carnivore conservation, but he also takes great interest in ecosystem conservation as a whole
