2022 Weston Family Awards in Northern Research recipient
Mary Anne is a master’s student in the School of Environmental Studies at Queen’s University who is happiest outside and finds joy in learning more about the environment around her.
Her research studies the impacts of changing vegetation on the spatial distribution and habitat use of Dall sheep in Southwest Yukon. Dall sheep have ecological, cultural and economic significance, and inhabit environments that are rapidly changing in response to global climate change. Combining traditional field methods and spatial analysis, Mary Anne’s work will contribute to an understanding
of the relationship between Dall sheep and their changing environment.
