Matthew Watson, M.Sc.

Biologist & Terrestrial Ecologist

Matthew is passionate about birding and wildlife photography. From an early age, he was always outdoors enjoying the sights and sounds of nature — even volunteering as a bird bander, getting to assist in the tracking of wild bird populations. This fondness for birds and other wildlife, along with a sense of responsibility for protecting the environment, guided him on his path to a role where he can apply his knowledge and education in the pursuit of protecting and preserving our natural environment.

Matthew brings a wealth of experience that focuses on combining Traditional Knowledge and Ecological Knowledge with project development and coordination. The goal of addressing a wide range of environmental and ecological concerns has seen Matthew working with government organizations, private industry, and First Nations communities.

Matthew is a member of Caldwell First Nation and has been actively involved with developing and delivering educational programs to the community focused on pressing environmental issues. Matthew has a BSc in biology from the University of Windsor and a MSc in biology from Western University, where he focused on the migratory survivorship of songbirds. In his spare time, Matthew enjoys photography, hiking, snowboarding, music, and hockey.
