Coordinator KateKTTC is very pleased to announce that the Ontario Trillium Foundation has granted us $118,700 over 36 months to hire a development/sustainability coordinator. Having a fulltime coordinator will enhance our capacity for fund development, outreach and community engagement.

Competition for the coordinator position was stiff – we received over 130 applications over the month of December. We would like to thank all those who applied for the position, and congratulate the sucesful candidate Kate Siena!

Kate joined KTTC in May of 2010 as volunteer/outreach coordinator hired through an earlier one year grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Upon completion of the grant she stayed on, filling the role on a volunteer basis. Kate has over 17 years of experience working with the public, volunteers, and various species of wildlife through her many roles at the Toronto Wildlife Centre, including managing the nation’s largest wildlife hotline. Since joining the team at KTTC she has been able to focus exclusively on the turtles of Ontario.
