About Mark Mallory
Dr. Mark Mallory is a Canada Research Chair in Coastal Wetland Ecosystems at Acadia University, Nova Scotia, where he studies coastlines in the Canadian Maritimes and Arctic. However, from 1999-2011, he lived in Iqaluit, Nunavut, with his wife Carolyn and three children (Conor, Jessamyn and Olivia), where he was a government biologist studying seabirds, particularly the effects of climate change and pollution on their biology. Most of Mark’s northern work takes him to the High Arctic, where there are few mosquitoes, little warmth, and lots of pesky polar bears. He has written over 130 scientific papers, including co-editing a book on Hudson Bay called A Little Less Arctic – Changes to Top Predators in the World’s Largest Northern Inland Sea, and his studies led to the creation of two new national wildlife areas on eastern Baffin Island, and the uplisting of Ivory Gulls to Endangered status in 2009.
