Brenna Martell

Nova Scotia Shorebird Engagement and Outreach Coordinator

Being from Cape Breton Island, I grew up surrounded by nature. Still, my interest in birds only began during my undergraduate degree, when I worked as the Coastal Stewardship Biologist for Birds Canada’s Piping Plover Conservation Program in Nova Scotia. This interest quickly became a passion. It led me to pursue a Master’s degree at the University Centre of the Westfjords in Iceland, where I am studying how conservation social science helps birdlife and biodiversity around the country. I am fascinated by understanding human motivations, perceptions, and behaviours as they relate to bird conservation worldwide. My position as the Nova Scotia Assistant Program Coordinator allows me to pursue my passions while finding new and innovative ways to connect people and birds.
