Weaving Indigenous and Western Ways of Knowing in Wildlife Ecology
Dr. Jesse Popp, Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Environmental Science
In a world where unprecedented environmental change has resulted in wildlife population declines across the globe, interdisciplinary research that embraces multiple ways of knowing is critical to fostering the preservation of biodiversity and culture. Research in the WISE Lab weaves Indigenous and Western science to investigate the causes and consequences of wildlife population fluctuations in ecosystems and to Indigenous traditional ways of life.
Dr. Jesse Popp is an emerging scholar and member of Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory, and strives to promote inclusive science that embraces multiple ways of knowing while on her journey of learning and sharing. Her research and teaching weaves Indigenous and Western ways of knowing to contribute to the advancement of environmental and ecological science.
