Heather Sayine-Crawford is the Manager of Wildlife Research and Monitoring for the Sahtu region within Environment and Natural Resources (GNWT). Born and raised in the NWT, Heather began working with ENR in her home town of Fort Smith as a biologist intern after graduating from the University of Alberta. In 2010 Heather moved to the Sahtu as a regional biologist. After some time working with a diversity of researchers and animals, Heather decided it was time to pursue her Master’s degree in wildlife management, she took some leave from the Sahtu to study Dall’s sheep population dynamics at Montana State University. The diversity of work, the interactions with friendly, knowledgeable people and the awe-inspiring landscapes keep Heather thankful for such an amazing career.
