About the Presenter

Gordon Court is presently the Provincial Wildlife Status Biologist for the Fish and Wildlife Division, Government of Alberta. He sits as the voting member for Alberta on the Committee on the Status of Endangered Species in Canada (COSEWIC) and is Alberta’s Scientific Authority for the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).

Through the course of his career as an ornithologist, he has studied the breeding biology and toxicology of birds at both ends of the Earth - from penguins to peregrine falcons. His Ph.D., conducted at the University of Otago, New Zealand, involved the study of marine pollutants in Antarctic seabirds. Earlier in his career, he completed a Master of Science degree on the toxicology and breeding biology of arctic peregrine falcons at Rankin Inlet, Nunavut. Gordon has also worked for over four decades on the recovery of the peregrine falcon in western Canada and is recognized internationally as an expert on this species. He has also studied forest-dwelling owls in the boreal forest of Canada, particularly those species potentially affected by forestry in Western Canada. Gordon is formerly the Canadian Director of the U.S.-based Raptor Research Foundation.
