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 they care to discuss. They received their MSc from Trent University, where they used radio-telemetry to study chimney swift foraging patterns in Guelph. They've dabbled with prairie dogs in southwestern Saskatchewan and Arctic terns in northern Manitoba, but their heart lies in species-at-risk conservation in Ontario.
