Kayla Ellis is a conservation techinician with the Nature Conservancy of Canada's (NCC's) Ontario Region.
As an intern with NCC this summer, her best experiences include getting to know the area’s flora and fauna. This includes a boat trip out to Gravelly Bay to observe some rare flowering plants, and a sleepover at the research station where she heard whip-poor-wills. More recently, she had the opportunity to track down a gray ratsnake, her first time ever observing one in the wild! She cannot wait to see what else is around the corner.
