Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup
Rachel is Manager of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, working to build an understanding of shoreline litter by engaging tens of thousands of citizen scientists across the country through cleanups. She received her B.Sc in Natural Resources Conservation from the University of British Columbia and has been working in the environmental non-profit sector ever since. Prior to working with The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup team she worked with the Stanley Park Ecology Society, Fraser Riverkeeper and Stand.earth. She is a dedicated water advocate standing up for our natural right to swimmable water and clean shorelines through work and volunteer opportunities as well as sport. In 2014 she swam over 30km across the Georgia Strait to raise awareness about swimmable water in Vancouver and surrounding areas.
