Mr. Bradbury has long been involved in Oregon politics and environmental issues affecting the state. He has served as an elected official, both as Oregon’s Secretary of State and as a member of the Oregon Senate, where he was Senate President. He directed a non-profit organization called For the Sake of the Salmon during which he worked with Northwest Native American tribes; federal, state and local governments; and timber, agriculture and fishing interests. He travels around the state to present locally adapted information on global warming and was personally trained by Al Gore to give these presentations. Bill Bradbury is one of Oregon’s two representatives to the Northwest Power and Conservation Council, a four-state compact that includes the states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. He currently serves as Chair of the Council after holding the Vice Chair position in 2012.
Dr. Steven Cooke is the Canada Research Chair and Associate Professor at the Fish Ecology and Conservation Physiology Laboratory in the Department of Biology and Institute of Environmental Science at Carleton University located in Ottawa, Canada. Cooke and his team conduct interdisciplinary research related to the evidence-based conservation and management of aquatic resources. Cooke has published over 300 peer reviewed papers on topics ranging from conservation social science and stakeholder engagement to behavioural endocrinology and comparative biochemistry. His work on biotelemetry and the application of physiological knowledge to conservation problems has been particularly influential on the scientific community. Since 1996, Cooke has been involved in studies related to fishway performance and in 2010 led the development of the CanFishPass database of fishways in Canada. In 2008 he was awarded the Medal from the Fisheries Society of the British Isles in recognition of his contributions to global fisheries issues at an early stage in his career. Cooke is currently the President of the Canadian Aquatic Resources Section of the American Fisheries Society and is Editor-in-Chief for the new journal Conservation Physiology. Cooke is also involved in NSERC HydroNet.
