Jeremy’s story with A Rocha began in 2017 when he joined the A Rocha Ontario team as a Conservation Assistant over the summer. Since that summer, Jeremy continued to work with A Rocha as a summer student and later as an Environmental Educator. Now, Jeremy is working as A Rocha Ontario’s Conservation Coordinator.
In his time with A Rocha Ontario, Jeremy developed a deep appreciation for the Cedar Haven Eco-Centre and the opportunity to practice his Christian faith through the conservation work. Jeremy’s passion for nature started in childhood, where he had the experience of growing up with a forest, pond and grassland in his backyard. This passion has only grown since then. At Redeemer University, Jeremy obtained a BSc in Environmental Science, and he later received a Graduate Certificate in Ecosystem Restoration from Niagara College. Before joining the A Rocha Ontario team as a Conservation Coordinator, Jeremy gained experience in conservation while working with EcoGuardianes and Conservation Halton. In his role now, Jeremy looks forward to doing practical work to restore and protect God’s creation.
