Suzanne’s Experience with Parks Canada Pukaskwa National Park
Suzanne had the opportunity to be engaged and lead different aspects of Parks Canada's Pukaskwa National Park priority projects during her placement.
Parks Canada’s Pukaskwa National Park placement is centered around the Resource Conservation team’s three priority initiatives: 1. Great Lakes Acoustic Telemetry Observation System Network and Lake Sturgeon Conservation, 2. Monitoring the Ecological Integrity of the Fresh Water and Coastal Ecosystems, 3. Active management: invasive species detection and impact assessment monitoring. The initiatives are driven and guided by the Parks Canada mandate and are among the priorities identified in our 2022-2023 work plan.
Suzanne had the opportunity to be engaged and lead different aspects of those 3 priorities. In addition, she was able to network with a wide variety of mentors and connections at Parks Canada and has personally gained more confidence in her own work and ability to complete complicated reports.
