Program Director, Southwest
Before Mike worked for the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), he volunteered for us. His first NCC project was in 2009 alongside his now-wife, Kayla. He fell in love with both the organization and the woman, and now works as an integral part of the NCC team.
Before NCC, Mike worked in the environmental consulting industry as a wildlife biologist, overseeing pre-disturbance wildlife surveys and habitat assessments to minimize the impacts of energy development on wildlife and species at risk throughout the prairies. Mike holds a technical diploma in wildlife and fisheries conservation and a bachelor of applied science degree in environment management, with a major in monitoring and environmental protection.
