Coordinator Kate Siena’s contract is coming to an end, and while we’re sad to see her go we wish her well on her travels this coming winter. The KTTC welcomes Lynda Ruegg as the new part-time volunteer & outreach coordinator for the winter months. The funding for her contract has been generously provided by a grant from Johansen-Larsen Foundation.

Lynda has been involved with KTTC since 2007. She has extensive experience as a turtle care volunteer and has also assisted with various outreach & fundraising events. She is passionate about turtles and has been involved with various projects such as turtle habitat restoration, turtle research, and working with Leatherback sea turtles in Costa Rica. She attended the National Wildlife Rehabilitation Association Conference in 2008 and the Chelonian Conservation Workshop at the Toronto Zoo in 2009 to gain knowledge and connect with experts in the field. She is excited about this new opportunity with KTTC and looks forward to meeting and working with all of you.
