Presentation:

The people of Canada's boreal forest are already experiencing significant climate shifts, which are impacting their ways of life, and their experiences out on the land and water. Kelsey's project, Boreal Heartbeat, explores the impact of these changes on the mental and emotional well-being of people who "live close to the land": trappers, hunters, anglers, farmers and herbalists. Kelsey conducted this research as a Fulbright Fellow and Visiting Scholar at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay.
