Staff Bio for James Neish

James Neish
Field Researcher

James started at MTRI in 2014, monitoring Blanding’s turtles in remote places in Kejimkujik NP&NHS, after having worked for Friends of Keji since 2011. He is a nature lover who works on all kinds of projects at MTRI. It takes a long time and a lot of focus to properly manage the data we collect, but James does it with a smile! When he’s not working, he enjoys spending time outside and learning about the great biodiversity in Nova Scotia! He also has a keen interest in neuroplasticity, especially with regard to overcoming learning struggles.
