Milaine Saumur began working with the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) team during the summer of 2012 as a conservation intern for the Outaouais region, while completing her bachelor’s degree in biological and ecological science at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières. She is responsible for coordinating annual visits to monitor NCC properties and conservation agreements, as well as for monitoring for the presence of species at risk on the properties.

Since 2013, Milaine has participated in a voluntary conservation project to protect the habitats of the western chorus frog, which aims to inform agricultural producers in the region about the species and to promote cultivation practices that encourage biodiversity.
