Hazel Wheeler, species recovery biologist with Wildilfe Preservation Canada.

Hazel Wheeler, lead biologist with Wildilfe Preservation Canada, has been coordinating the Loggerhead Shrike Recovery Program since 2013, and has been bitten more times than she cares to discuss. She received her MSc from Trent University, where she used radio-telemetry to study chimney swift foraging patterns in Guelph. She’s dabbled with prairie dogs in southwestern Saskatchewan and Arctic terns in northern Manitoba, but her heart lies in species-at-risk conservation in Ontario.
