My name is Niall Gallagher Clancy. I’m a fifth-generation Montanan, born and raised in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley. In grade school, I formed a group to save worms on the playground during rainy days. I haven’t changed much since then.

I’ve been a student of biology my whole life, and 2021 marks my 10th anniversary employed in science. Today, I work to conserve native species with the scientific method as guide.

When not capturing species in the field or analyzing data on the computer, I can be found writing about nature, designing a logo for one of my projects, fly fishing, watching baseball, or listening to the latest Star Wars audiobook.

This website serves as the home for my various interests, namely Conservation Science and Science Communication. Maybe one day I’ll write a Star Wars book.
