Marie-Ève is back from the Sedna IV

A dedicated biologist, Marie-Ève is interested in both applied research and scientific education. After earning a bachelor’s degree in biology from UQAM, she recently completed a master’s in research at the Université de Sherbrooke. She has visited several countries, including Tanzania, Braziland Costa Rica, to share the results of her research and broaden her knowledge of vast ecosystems worldwide. Marie-Ève caught the invertebrate bug when taking part in field research on how logging impacts the insect community in Northern Québec. She then joined the team of scientific interpreters at the Montréal Insectarium. In 2009, her master’s work—done in Calakmul, Mexico—shed some light on certain essential ecological needs of the King Vulture, a scavenger whose population is declining. Now a part of the Montréal Biodôme’s scientific team, Marie-Ève is joining the 1000 Days for the Planet mission in order to show the importance of protecting the beauty of the living world.
