““It is advisable to look from the tide pool to the stars and then back to the tide pool again.” – John Steinbeck, Log from the Sea of Cortez
Kyle grew up on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia amidst an interesting milieu of rural development, fish farms, salmon declines, and First Nation sovereignty struggles. It was here Kyle developed an intrinsic curiosity for what makes our coastal communities healthy, resilient, and sustainable. Kyle has developed this curiosity into a respect for social-ecological systems. He has studied these systems in the contexts of ethnobotany in the Andean Cloud-Forests, studying rhino poaching in South Africa, and various ecological restoration projects and studies on the coast of BC. Kyle is a certified bear guide and has two years of experience safely facilitating respectful viewing of grizzly and black bears. He enjoys surfing, fishing, and being on the water, and is incredibly excited to be a part of the Outer Shores team aboard the Passing Cloud.
