Originally from Winnipeg, Tyler earned a B.Sc. in Natural Resources Conservation in 2001 from the Faculty of Forestry of the University of British Columbia. Beginning his career as a planter, supervisor and silviculture technician, he continued to work as a canoe tripping guide and ranger/warden in several Provincial Parks of western Canada (e.g. Algonquin, ON; Whiteshell, MB; Lower Sunshine Coast, BC). As an intern and assistant park planner, he likewise contributed to the development and field reconnaissance of a new protected area (Woodland Caribou Signature Site) in northwestern Ontario. Subsequently as an ecologist he coordinated and conducted a field study characterizing the use of islands by calving woodland caribou in the Trout Lake Conservation Reserve (Red Lake District OMNR). Following a stint as a fisheries technician for the Transboundary Rivers Division (BC/Alaska) of the Department of Fisheries & Oceans Canada, Tyler moved to Montreal to pursue a Masters degree in Wildlife Biology.
In 2011, Tyler obtained his M.Sc. from the Université du Québec à Montréal with honourable mention. Since that time he has served as a technical expert on behalf of numerous organizations and government agencies concerned with land use planning, species-at-risk conservation and sustainable forestry. These include the Cree Nation Government, the Cree-Quebec Forestry Board, the Naskapi Nation of Kawawachikamach, the Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs du Québec (MFFP), the Canadian Parks & Wilderness Society (CPAWS), and the Newfoundland & Labrador Department of Environment and Conservation. Tyler is also a certified lead auditor of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and periodically conducts conformance and compliance audits on behalf of the Rainforest Alliance.
