Bryant DeRoy

In September 2019, I successfully defended my MSc thesis as a student in the ACS lab at the University of Victoria and a Raincoast Conservation Graduate Fellow. I am broadly interested in community-driven research and locally-led resource management strategies. I am working closely with the Kitasoo/Xai’xais Stewardship Authority based in Klemtu, British Columbia to implement ecosystem-based management in Kitasoo/Xai’xais Territory. Specifically, I am interested in exploring the role of cultural values in current and future forest management scenarios.

I have spent the last few field seasons prior to my Master’s work on the Central Coast as part of a wide variety of projects in partnership with Qqs Projects Society and the Heiltsuk Integrated Resource Management Department. I am very grateful for the experiences, opportunities and relationships that these partnerships have offered me and I look forward to continuing to build them in the years to come. I am also thankful for the generous support from Raincoast Conservation Foundation.
