Gillian Bee received her bachelor’s in wildlife biology from the University of Vermont and her master’s in wildlife biology from Clemson University. She has spent many seasons working on avian-related projects throughout the U.S., with the high-desert flora, fauna and local culture being her favorite. Prior to joining the Bird Conservancy in December 2014, Gillian worked as a private lands biologist in western South Dakota and southeast Montana to conserve the Greater Sage-Grouse. She is passionate about building relationships that encourage proactive conservation for wildlife and the rural culture of the American west. Gillian works out of the Bird Conservancy’s Fort Collins office.
Private landowners and agricultural producers (i.e., farmers and ranchers) play a critical role in providing habitat for birds and other wildlife, as well as food and fiber for people.
At Bird Conservancy of the Rockies, we believe healthy wildlife habitat and healthy human communities can more than just co-exist – they can thrive with proper management and stewardship. Our biologists and rangeland ecologists work alongside private landowners, land managers and resource professionals in local communities to build trust and foster proactive, voluntary conservation efforts.
It’s a win-win for birds and people. A diversity of wildlife habitats are improved to contribute to populations of songbirds, grouse, waterbirds and other wildlife, while farms and ranches remain working lands that support families, communities and a rural way of life.
