HAGRG member Mark Maftei has joined Environment Canada! 

Working as a Wildlife Research Technician out of the Delta, BC office, Mark will be involved in both ongoing and new research projects examining the distribution and biology of seabirds along the British Columbia coast. Although he remains committed to his Arctic research interests, the opportunity to work extensively in a part of the world he already calls home is bound to be an exciting change of pace.
