- Who/what inspired you to care about conservation?
- I was always passionate about nature as it has been a huge part of my culture. As soon as I saw how people were treating our home, I knew there had to be a change.
- If you could sit down with anyone in the world and have tea or coffee, who would it be? And why?

Sea Kayaking in British Columbia
The TriPod’s expedition is sea kayaking off in Vancouver Island, B.C. They start in Tofino and then navigate through the coves, natural harbours, and small islands in and around Clayoquot Sound, while enjoying the spectacular coastal views. For part of the expedition, they learn skills needed to travel safely and comfortably in the marine environment. Working with their group, they learn paddling skills, navigation, water safety and camp-craft skills such as knots, leave-no-trace camping practices, shelter building and cooking over a fire. An overnight solo experience is included in this course.
