Kiel Drake:

The Saskatchewan Breeding Bird Atlas: Putting Saskatchewan's Birds on the Map

Kiel Drake is the Saskatchewan Director for Bird Studies Canada. Kiel enjoys being outside, especially in remote places, and this has led him to career in wildlife conservation. At work he is generally capturing or counting birds in an effort to understand their distribution and abundance. At other times he might be playing guitar, gardening, paddling his kayak, hunting, fishing, or being a dad to two daughters. He will provide an update on the Saskatchewan Breeding Bird Atlas, a five-year, volunteer-driven project which provides a contemporary assessment of the status and distribution of breeding birds in the province. Kiel will discuss the progress made in the first two seasons and highlight the challenges that lie ahead. Breeding Bird Atlases are milestones in ornithology and provide a unique opportunity for inspired naturalists to contribute directly to Saskatchewan's rich ornithological legacy.
