DutiesLove chatting with people, sharing stories and educating all ages about wildlife and cohabitating with them? Consider becoming a tour guide (don’t worry if you don’t know much about wildlife, we provide you with training). The public can book guided group tours with us any time of the year. It’s wonderful to see their reactions upon seeing a Moose or bear for the first time! Guided tours are a great way for us to educate the public and create awareness of what we do and it’s also a good way to raise funds for our registered charity.
