Research Associate

Ruth Shea has worked for 40 years in Trumpeter Swan restoration, research and management. She’s now working to create a new initiative that will ensure the comprehensive long-term management of these beautiful birds. She and fellow wildlife biologist, Drew Reed, have created the Northern Rockies Trumpeter Swan Stewards (NRTSS), a network of land and wildlife stewards whose activities improve the future quality of swan nesting habitat.  By providing stewards with greater knowledge of swan ecology and the tools to conserve or improve swan habitat, NRTSS aims to keep regional nesting populations secure.
