Lesley Evans Ogden

Writing from the verdant suburbs of Vancouver, Canada, I specialize in stories about wildlife, ecology, biodiversity, animal behaviour and the environment, including energy, the impacts of climate change and Indigenous-led conservation. I also explore the intersection of science, human rights, and policy. I crossed a bridge from scientist to writer after a PhD and postdoctoral research on shorebird and songbird ecology. My by-lines appear internationally at places like the New York Times, Natural History, BioScience, BBC Future, The Atlantic, Discover, Smithsonian, New Scientist, and CBC’s The Nature of Things.
