The Alaskan pilot-biologist on the front line of climate change
from Outside Magazine
"Biologists are so lucky to see the things we see," says Heather Wilson, 40, a wildlife biologist and pilot for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Division of Migratory Bird Management. "But pilot-biologists are even luckier." Wilson is one of five female pilots flying remote landscapes for the FWS. She conducts aerial surveys to keep tabs on migratory bird populations for species management and to set sport hunting regulations.
