Nesa7 White recently completed her undergraduate program in the Department of Natural Resource Sciences at TRU. She has now tackled an MSc degree looking at factors influencing the recruitment of lambs into populations of California Bighorn Sheep in the Thompson Region. She is using GPS collars to track the movements of ewes, while augmenting that data with in-the-field observations of both ewes and lambs (a challenging task). Nesa7 is a member of the Lytton First Nation.
Partners on Nesa7’s project include the Wild Sheep Society of BC, the First Nations governments of Skeetchestn and Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc, and the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources Operations. She can be reached at whiten10[at]mytru.ca
