Heather is a Co-op student from the Environmental Technology program at Camosun College and will be with World Fisheries Trust until May 2018. Her primary focus thus far has been assisting Jillian in the set up of Seaquaria in participating schools and programming through Seaquaria Ocean Education, a local WFT initiative to teach children about our ocean and the animals it holds. She looks forward to continuing to learn from us assisting with the Seaquaria Ocean Education programs as well as starting to learn more about our Olympia Oyster initiative in the Gorge waterway!
