Marc d’Entremont has over 20 years of experience in the public and private sectors where his work has focused on natural resources research and management and environmental sciences. Marc has worked in the public and private sectors in Atlantic, western and northern Canada. His career began counting bird nests and muskrat huts in the salt marshes along the Petitcodiac River in New Brunswick followed by searching for Common Eider and cormorant nests on coastal islands off of Nova Scotia. Marc spent eight years living in Yellowknife where he conducted projects on arctic geese, lynx, and wolverine. Marc currently lives in British Columbia where most of his work has focused on species at risk, including Marbled Murrelet and woodland caribou. His current Ph.D. research is developing analytical techniques for bird movement data collected by avian radar systems. These techniques will be used to assist in assessing the collision risk to nocturnally migrating bird species at wind energy facilities.
Marc’s technical expertise is in the field of wildlife management and his recent work has focused on the behaviour and movement of wildlife species. Through his professional experience he has assessed the impacts of road and rail developments on the mortality of wildlife species, including large mammals (e.g., ungulates), avifauna and amphibians. Marc has conducted numerous biological investigations, with special attention on species at risk, at several sites in western and northern Canada for the mining, oil and gas and wind energy sectors. Other recent project work that Marc has managed includes the development and implementation of wildlife monitoring plans for wind energy facilities, completion of bird hazard assessments for small community airports in the Northwest Territories, and completion of biophysical assessments for urban and industrial sites.
