“My interest in wildlife started at the age of 6, inspired by the butterflies that used to feed on our neighbour’s flowers. More recently, I was a director of the society which manages the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary in Delta and co-founded WBT Wild Bird Trust of British Columbia which established the North Shore’s first wildlife sanctuary, at Maplewood Flats in North Vancouver. After a long time as a dentist I graduated from the University of Victoria last year with a diploma in the Restoration of Natural Systems and established my new business Green Admiral Nature Restoration. So, I am still injecting but now Japanese knotweed instead of people. The peculiar part is that my liability insurance has increased.
I am currently a member of the Invasive Plants Working Group which is scheduled to present its recommendations to council at the end of the year on a strategy to control invasive plants in West Vancouver. I am also an active grandpops and volunteer with the Lighthouse Park Preservation Society.”
