We’re excited to welcome a new member to our small staff team. Justine Apostolopoulos will be joining us in September in the role of Stewardship Coordinator. She will be involved in a broad range of our programs from youth education to terrestrial habitat restoration and marine monitoring.
Since she was a 7 year old, feigning illness to stay home from school and bird watch, Justine has fostered her love of the natural world through writing, photography, music and community engagement.
Justine has always been drawn to the natural beauty of the Southern Gulf Islands, moving from Vancouver to SḴŦAḴ/Mayne Island in 2017. She is inspired by the encouraging spirit of the community here and has since volunteered/worked in environmental stewardship, heritage, performing arts, customer service, childcare, agriculture and community development. She is currently the president of the Mayne Island Little Theatre, a Creative Writing major at the University of Victoria, and is excited to bring together arts and sciences within the Stewardship Coordinator position.
