Kayla Burak was born and raised in Alberta, but her heart has fallen for Saskatchewan. She spent her summers outside and her family made frequent trips to the mountains, but it was within the prairies that Kayla found her true calling.
Kayla's introduction to the Nature Conservancy of Canada was in 2009 when she was a conservation intern in Lethbridge. She has also gained work experience with numerous other environmental NGOs performing wildlife and species-at-risk surveys. Kayla completed her master of science degree at the University of Regina, where she studied the greater sage grouse. Most recently, Kayla managed the Saskatchewan Prairie Conservation Action Plan, where she discovered a passion for environmental education and engagement.
