Sarah Elmeligi, PhD, has focused her career on the ecology and conservation of large landscapes in Alberta and British Columbia. Her graduate research applied an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the impacts of recreation on grizzly bear habitat use and behaviour, as well as visitor perceptions of impact and support for management actions. Working in the environmental non-profit sector, Sarah has helped create new protected areas, improve land management, and effective engage communities in conservation. Sarah examines landscapes holistically, aiming to create management recommendations that balance biological, social, and cultural needs. Her first full length book, What Bears Teach Us, weaves the science of bear behaviour with the realities of wildlife management to discuss coexistence. She believes in the inherent value of wilderness and wildlife management is usually people management. She is the owner of Sarah E Consulting and lives in Canmore with her husband, daughter, dog, and cats.
