Squamish’s wildlife expert has switched posts.
Meg Toom has changed teams to become an independent contractor with the District of Squamish.
Toom is now heading wildlife education and co-ordination services at municipal hall.
Previously, Toom was the point person in town for WildSafe BC, a branch of the B.C. Conservation Foundation.
The foundation is a registered charity that provides assistance to conservation officers and educates the public on wildlife.
However, it isn’t directly affiliated with the conservation service.
In her new post, Toom is expected to fulfill a similar role.
***Correction: Toom has been hired as an independent contractor, not a staffer with the District.
