A dedicated environmental scientist, Clemens is primarily interested in ecological restoration and sustainable natural resource management. Other interests include the inclusion of stakeholders in consultation and community-driven environmental initiatives. He is currently working in Nanaimo, British Columbia, as a Wildlife Technician for the Vancouver Island Marmot Recovery Foundation (MRF).
His graduate work examined conceptual approaches to stream ecosystem restoration relating to the re-integration of natural processes. Feel free to explore an ongoing component of this work, the Stream Ecosystem Network (or S.E.N.)--it may be inaccessible at this time, but will be re-uploaded as soon as possible.
An avid mountaineer, skier, and rock climber, he spends most of his free time outdoors. He thoroughly enjoys climbing in Squamish, looking for steep and deep powder in the Duffey area, and documenting his latest bird observations. Other pastimes include fishing, hunting, fostering dogs, sailing, sewing, and backpacking.
