The Sea to Cedar Team
Scott Rogers, Program Director
Scott is passionate about this place. As Program Director for Sea to Cedar she prioritizes her efforts around projects that emphasize the revitalization of coastal ecosystems and communities through both research and education. She also works with various communities and the Raincoast Conservation Foundation in efforts to protect local bears and wolves from trophy hunting, to educate youth about co-existing with carnivores, and to study carnivore-salmon-human systems in coastal British Columbia. Researching wild salmon since 2003, she is also an ecologist and founding board member of Salmon Coast Field Station. She envisions that Sea to Cedar will connect people to community-driven initiatives and inspire solutions for place.
ADRIEN MULLIN, COASTAL CARNIVORE PROJECT MANAGER
Adrien grew up on the west coast of Vancouver Island in Clayoquot Sound. A reverence for the wilds gripped him from a young age, spurring a multi-faceted career mingling with marine and rainforest life on the coast. His passion for conservation and experience with wildlife has led him to head up Sea to Cedar's project focusing on grizzly, black bear, and wolf monitoring. The genuine respect and enthusiasm embodied by Adrien in his efforts to educate and inspire others on wild carnivores has found a firm footing with our coastal carnivore project.
