Jul 13, 2022

Tuesday, January 25, 2022 – Time: 10:00 a.m.
presenter: Victoria Badham, Education and Outreach Manager, TWC
host: Cheryl Paige, Convener

This presentation is the first of a three-part series that is part of the focus of our District 23 North York Community Grant Project in 2021-2022. We learned about the top dangers facing songbirds, waterbirds, and birds of prey, as well as the remarkable work TWC is doing to help birds get back to the wild. We also learned the significant impact small individual actions could have on our feathered neighbours.

Victoria Badham: Education and Outreach Manager

Victoria joined TWC’s Wildlife Hotline team in 2011 after completing her undergraduate degree in Environmental Policy and Urban Studies at the University of Toronto. Responding to thousands of hotline calls – from wildlife emergencies to requests for general wildlife information – increased her awareness of the vast issues affecting urban wildlife, as well as commonly held misconceptions about various wild species, and the urgent need for broader public education. She now holds a Master of Education from the University of Toronto and manages TWC’s hotline, education and outreach programs.  She aims to inspire children, youth, and adults alike to respect and connect with nature and the amazing wild species with whom we share our neighbourhoods.
