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 science my whole life and 2021 marks my 10th anniversary employed in formal scientific research. 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, producing a podcast, 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.
