She is a certified wildlife rehabilitator and past president of the International Wildlife Rehabilitators’ Council, as well as the co-founder of Le Nichoir, a Quebecbased nonprofit animal welfare agency dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of injured and orphaned wild birds. Lynn has a bachelor’s degree in environmental biology, a graduate degree in ecotoxicology and her Ph.D. in environmental toxicology. As a scientist, Lynn turns to biological data to help drive the planning and management of patient care. She lectures internationally and performs continuing research into the impact of oil in birds, especially the northern gannets that migrate south to Florida and the Gulf of Mexico. Other research interests include reviewing research publications and translating this into science-based rehabilitative care for a wide range of species including, for example, Virginia opossums and 9-banded armadillos.
