Wildlife Technician with BC Ministry of Forests in Fort St. John, BC
For my forth co-op term, I have been working with BC’s Ministry of Forests in Fort St. John as a Wildlife Technician. My main responsibilities and tasks include biological data collection and management of fish and wildlife to inform management decisions in the Northeast region. I work with a wide range of species, from fish including walleye, northern pike, and yellow perch, to wildlife including stone’s sheep, mountain goats, moose, caribou, and bears. I’ve gained experience working with regional biologists, and supporting working relationships with stakeholders and First Nations. This co-op position has been extremely valuable in terms of the diversity of work, learning, and connections I have been able to gain. As I finish my last work term, I am grateful for the experiences I have gained within the co-op program, and am eager to connect co-op to career.
