Annette Luttermann PhD is an ecologist based in Golden BC. She has worked with Aboriginal communities across Canada for over thirty years studying the effects of large hydroelectric dams on river ecosystems. A focus of her work has been observing how changes in hydrology created by hydroelectric operations can affect riparian ecosystems and the habitat of aquatic mammals including beaver and muskrat as well as many bird species that can be seriously compromised by alterations in seasonal patterns of river flow. Annette spends a lot of time exploring the wetlands in the upper Columbia where the river runs mostly free of major obstructions – except for beaver dams." string(6) "Leader" string(93) "https://www.wingsovertherockies.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Annette-at-Floe-Lake-Trail.jpg"
