Say hello to another amazing board member – our American Eel expert – Chris Hearn!

I am a Biologist with SEM Ltd. with extensive experience in biological and ecological monitoring, research, and surveying, specializing in terrestrial ecology but often dabbling in Aquatic research.

Before joining SEM Ltd., I spent 9 years at Provincial Parks, where I balanced conservation and human recreation.

Following my passions I have also conducted surveys abroad traveling to the Amazon Rainforest as a research assistant to experience the immense biodiversity firsthand.

Joining the board in Fall 2022 as a non-voting member, I was drawn by NAACAP’s reputation and the potential for collaborative research and outreach initiatives.
