Sommaire biographique des rédactrices du rapport

Linda Nichol possède une maîtrise ès sciences en zoologie de l’University of British Columbia, où elle a étudié l’écologie de la recherche de nourriture et les déplacements saisonniers de la population d’épaulards résidente du nord en Colombie-Britannique. Elle a participé pendant de nombreuses années, principalement en tant que biologiste consultante, à des projets liés aux mammifères marins ainsi qu’à des projets liés aux oiseaux marins côtiers, aux invertébrés et aux végétaux intertidaux, et à la surveillance de l’environnement. En 2001, elle s’est jointe au ministère des Pêches et des Océans en tant que biologiste en recherche, où elle a effectué des recherches en lien avec la conservation, essentiellement sur la loutre de mer. Mme Nichol a collaboré à la rédaction de plus d’une douzaine de rapports et de publications scientifiques.

Jane Watson possède un doctorat de la University of California, située à Santa Cruz, où elle a étudié l’écologie de la communauté de loutres de mer.
