Hi there! Name’s Troy. I’m 22, live in Western Canada, and am driven to learn, explore, and understand more about the world.

I'm an atheist Secular Buddhist - sceptical, freethinking, and reflective. I have an INFJ personality, and match the description for that type rather well.

Things that I enjoy or take interest in include cartography, dogs, Gaelic, history, literature, meditation, everything about the natural world (botany, geology, palaeontology, and just getting out in the wild there to hike and travel), writing, and my wonderful boyfriend most of all! I hope you enjoy the pieces of myself I share here.

    Antler Survey:  What can biologists learn from shed antlers?

    Well, pregnant caribou maintain their antlers until they give birth. This means they drop their antlers in the same area where they drop their calves. Therefore, biologists can determine where on Arctic Refuge caribou historically calved and when – all by collecting and dating antlers.
