Margo Morrison is the manager of conservation science with the Nature Conservancy of Canada's (NCC's) Atlantic Region. She manages the development of strategic landscape conservation plans that identify where NCC should work, the species and habitats NCC needs to protect, their health and the threats to them.   

Prior to joining NCC, Margo worked with the Department of Natural Resources in the Fish and Wildlife Branch with the Habitat Program. Margo was involved in setting the habitat objectives for forest management plans on Crown land. 

Currently she sits on the New Brunswick Scientific Advisory Committee to the Minister of Natural Resources and was recently appointed to the board of Two Countries One Forest (2C1F). Margo graduated from the University of New Brunswick with a degree of Forestry and Environmental Management with a minor in Geographic Information Systems in 2003.

Margo presently resides in Fredericton with her husband Scott and two daughters, Abigale and Leah. During any spare time, the Morrison family loves heading to the family cottage along the shores of the Saint John River and either swimming, sailing, fishing, hiking, taking pictures or camping out under the stars.
