Dan Arndt is a Wildlife Biologist with a passion for high quality data collection supporting environmental surveys throughout western Canada. To him, the most important aspect of his work is the quality and integrity of the data that is collected, analyzed, and ultimately reported on. With this in mind, it is absolutely vital to any team to have a top notch bird biologist to help with those data, and train others who have the desire and interest to learn.
Dan’s area of specialization is focused on bird surveys of all types, including breeding birds, sharp-tailed grouse, burrowing owls, and bird migration surveys to support renewable energy projects. He also has extensive experience conducting mammal, reptile, and amphibian surveys throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.
He loves the work that he does, and his strongest asset is his unquenchable thirst for knowledge, and learning more about the natural history of not only his survey subjects, but all aspects of the environment.
