Spotlight on New Staff Member, Micayla Harland

Micayla is our new behind the scenes bookkeeper. Welcome Micayla!

Please share an early/childhood experience that was pivotal to your personal relationship to wildlife.

On holiday in Penticton, BC Canada.

I grew up part-time (child of divorce) on a small hobby farm in the Manitoba prairies. We had a couple horses and a few dozen head of cattle. One memory of this time that will never fade in my mind happened when I was about 10 years old. My dad gathered me up from the living room where I was reading a book and made me go outside with him. I had no idea what was going on until it was already happening. It was time I helped out with the birthing of a brand new baby calf. It was life changing.
