Intern at Parks Canada in Vancouver, BC
This summer I have been working on educating people around Vancouver about Species at Risk, conservation efforts and research at various Parks Canada locations as well as leading the public to foster a deeper connection to the natural world around. This position allowed me to grow as a communicator and interpreter. I learned how to simplify complex environmental topics and use creative methods to engage stakeholders in important conversations about nature and science. Thanks to co-op with Parks Canda, my passion for conservation became a tool to inspire people of all ages to become environmental stewards in their community. I would recommend co-op with Parks Canada to anyone who wants to gain valuable experience with science communication and work alongside like-minded and passionate people who strive to protect, preserve and present natural and cultural heritage of Canada.
