Lead Conservation Scientist
Kimberly Heinemeyer received her B.S. at University of California, Davis and M.S. at University of Montana in Wildlife Biology and her Ph.D. in Environmental Studies with a focus in Conservation Biology from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Kim has a keen interest in the ecology and conservation of rare species and the landscapes they depend upon. As a lead conservation scientist for Round River, she has led or collaborated on multiple analyses of regional landscape patterns in ecological values to support informed land management including in British Columbia and Namibia. Through these efforts, she has developed an interest and focus on the needs and requirements for sustaining aboriginal cultural values and land uses which are often tightly linked to the ecological values across landscapes. Kim has also led or collaborated on a diversity of applied research and monitoring efforts on rare, declining or vulnerable species including on fisher, American marten, wolverine, grizzly bears, northern woodland caribou and Stone’s sheep as well as African ungulates in Namibia and Botswana. Kim has worked for Round River since 1998.
