Dr. Lynn Lee
An ardent fan of all ‘fish’ in the sea, Lynn has logged thousands of scientific dives in cold water and is currently the marine ecologist for Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, National Marine Conservation Area Reserve, and Haida Heritage Site. She recently finished her doctoral thesis that explores ecological interactions, historical ecology and governance related to northern abalone conservation and sea otter recovery. Lynn lives on a hobby farm in rural Tlell on Haida Gwaii with her spouse, Fred the cat, Fred the sourdough, a garden and a recent unexpected stork delivery, Masu the dog, in place of the now-fledged kid, Taimen. Over 27 years of life and work on the islands have found her engaged in a diversity of marine and land conservation initiatives. A few highlights include marine biologist planner and dive biologist for the Haida Nation, local coordinator for World Wildlife Fund Canada, stream restoration biologist and member of many land and marine use planning tables. When not engaged in things ecological, you might find Lynn making art, playing music, experimenting in the kitchen, biking in the wind, or walking on the beach.
