Patrick Burke is a conservation ecologist and environmental consultant working on biodiversity, climate change, and environmental permitting for infrastructure projects. He uses passive monitoring tools, such as camera traps, bioacoustic recording units, passive integrated transponders, and marine radar, to monitor and assess changes in ecological states. He has used camera traps to assess disturbance regimes on mammals in protected areas, to observe behavior of animals, and to monitor physical environmental conditions (e.g., the rate of snowmelt). Patrick works in the US, western Canada, and the western Amazon.
