Jessica Haines at MacEwan University.

I am an educator and an ecologist. I am an assistant professor at MacEwan University, and as an educator my goal is to connect others with the natural world. My current research focuses on monitoring biodiversity in Alberta using the app NatureLynx.

Outside of work, I love the outdoors and spend my time hiking, hunting, fishing, and gardening. I spend a lot of time with my labrador retrievers Amy (pictured above) and Starling, and we train for various dog sports and bird hunting. I also have two cats and foster cats for a local animal rescue.
