Starting in the late 1990s, following graduate work at SFU’s Centre for Wildlife Ecology, Sean was engaged in research on Marbled Murrelets. This research included using radar techniques to establish baseline population estimates for major watersheds throughout the South Coast, from Harrison Lake to Bute Inlet.
Sean is a Registered Professional Biologist of BC and recently led a multi-disciplinary team to complete an environmental assessment for a major proposed mine in northwestern BC – culminating in a 25,000 page submission currently under BCEA Act and CEA Act review process. Sean lives in Roberts Creek with his wife, Heather Evans-Cullen, and 4 boys ranging from 5 to almost 16, and is currently employed as Manager, Environmental Assessments at Ecofish Research Ltd.
