Katie Studholme


Katie Studholme received a Master of Science in Biology from Dalhousie University in 2018 and works as a Conservation Data Analyst for Birds Canada and an independent contractor for Environment and Climate Change Canada. Katie has always been drawn to and fascinated by places where the ocean meets the land – particularly islands – and the more remote the better! After studying biology and environmental studies in university, Katie found the perfect union of her interests in waterbird science and worked for two years as a field technician in Galápagos National Park (Ecuador), Assateague Island National Seashore (Maryland), Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge (Alaska), and Everglades National Park (Florida). For her master’s thesis, she used various tracking technologies to reveal the at-sea movements of seabirds (auklets) breeding at island colonies in British Columbia. Since graduation, Katie has continued working with birds as an independent contractor, offering both data analysis and field services. Katie also enjoys hiking, watersports, gardening, photography, and volunteering for conservation organizations in the Maritimes.
