Over the past few years, she has taken part in undergraduate research where she has worked in restoration, animal behaviour, climate change and invasive weed control. She has volunteered on conservation projects with reptiles, amphibians, birds and sharks. In 2016, she was elected to a representative position in her student government where she worked on social campaigns and student outreach. She is an ambassador for sustainability, and has a passion for environmental protection and conservation.
She is excited to expand her knowledge and work as a Stewardship Intern for the Okanagan Similkameen Stewardship!

Callan Cooper is a student at Trinity Western University in Langley, BC, pursuing her degree in Environmental Studies.  Growing up in a unique ecosystem, the Okanagan Valley, she has always been passionate about the natural world and the diversity dwelling within it. Over the past few years she has been able to bolster this passion through her studies doing ecological work in the Fraser Valley area and on the island of Maui.   Callan is excited to be working with us this summer so that she can learn more about environmental sustainability and encourage others to be stewards of this fascinating world we live in!
