It is with gratitude and sadness that we bid farewell to some wonderful Brooksdale team members.

We will miss Tim Friesen’s dry wit and thoughtful tending of the various A Rocha flocks.


We will miss Jesse Wildeman’s faithful labour restoring wetlands, connecting with local landowners and leading volunteers in hands-on conservation work.


We will miss Sarah Wildeman’s daily presence, but are hugely grateful she will remain on the team part time, giving guidance to the internship program and serving in a coaching role with the wider team.

And we will, of course, miss Skye and Dayla, the Wildemans’ beautiful little girls.


We wish them each well in the adventures that lie ahead.
