Marc d’Entremont is a Registered Professional Biologist (R.P.Bio.) with 30 years of experience in the public and private sectors. He is based in LGL’s Sidney, B.C., office and serves as a key senior resource for work relating to environmental permitting and regulatory affairs, environmental assessment legislation, and assessments of impacts to birds, wildlife, and terrestrial and marine resources. 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, N.W.T., where he conducted projects on arctic geese, lynx, and wolverine. He currently lives in British Columbia where most of his work has focused on species at risk, including Marbled Murrelet and woodland caribou. Marc completed his undergraduate degree in Biology at Acadia University, his Master’s degree in Environment and Management at Royal Roads University, and his Ph.D. in Natural Resources and Environmental Studies at the University of Northern British Columbia.
Through his professional experience, Marc has assessed the impacts of energy, oil and gas, and mineral developments on the mortality of wildlife species, including small and large mammals, avifauna, and amphibians. He has conducted numerous studies on the behaviour and movement of wildlife species, including bats, land birds, marine birds, ungulates, and furbearers in several regions of Canada (eastern, western, and northern). He provides technical expertise and advice on the design and implementation of field programs, data analysis, and technical reports. Marc manages other senior, intermediate, and junior biologists in the office and field settings and has worked with all levels of government, First Nation groups, and private developers. He has also designed and facilitated various meetings and workshops in recent years related to the collection of biophysical data and information, obtaining community input and feedback on ecosystem-based plans, and the collection and sharing of traditional knowledge related to natural resources. Marc is also a Contract Faculty Member at Royal Roads University and the current Chair of the Audit and Practice Review Committee for the B.C. College of Applied Biologists, which is responsible for holding professional biologists accountable for their work.
