Megan Jensen is the natural area manager for the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) in southeast Alberta. She is responsible for conservation initiatives here, specifically in the Cypress Uplands, Pakowki Lake and Milk River Basin Natural Area.
Megan joined NCC in January 2018. She wanted to be directly involved in conservation and to work with amazing landowners, leaseholders and conservation partners. She appreciates NCC’s collaborative team atmosphere and that it is a positive place to work.
Megan spent five years working with Alberta Conservation Association. She started as a wildlife technician working on the MULTISAR project and the Pronghorn Resource Enhancement and Monitoring Project and progressed to a full-time wildlife biologist. After working with the Alberta Conservation Association, she obtained a position with the Miistakis Institute as their local project coordinator for their Pronghorn Xing project and continued in that role for her first two years while working with NCC.
Megan enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons. She likes to get out camping, birding, hiking, cross-country skiing and truly enjoys anything that gets her family outside learning about and enjoying nature. She also loves to read.
