Manager of Conservation Science and Planning, Saskatchewan Region
Matthew Braun is a University of Saskatchewan, College of Agriculture graduate with a BScA and MSc and 15 years of experience as a professional agrologist working in range management. As an agrologist, Matthew has worked with ranchers and other resource managers across British Columbia and Saskatchewan, monitoring the impacts of livestock grazing to balance competing resource uses. Matthew’s role within the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is to facilitate the development and implementation of NCC Saskatchewan Region’s 11 Natural Area Conservation Plans and work with researchers interested in exploring prairie and parkland ecology. The pasture project has been an amazing opportunity to hear the stories of ranchers and farmers and land managers from across Saskatchewan and integrate them into NCC’s work of conserving biodiversity.
