Maureen Vo, Education and Development Coordinator

Maureen joined the Raincoast team in 2016 to help pilot the Salish Sea Emerging Stewards program. She continues to develop and deliver the education program and additionally supports the development team.

As a proud BC resident, Maureen grew up exploring and enjoying the natural playground around her through hiking, kayaking, snowboarding, rock-climbing, and now sailing. Her passion for educating and connecting people to nature, led her to organize the annual Stepping into Nature Festival at Burns Bog, which educates over 400 students per year with hands-on nature education. She has worked with environmental conservation organizations throughout the coast of BC to help people recognize the incredible biodiversity of BC’s coastal environment, as well as understand the many threats and challenges it faces.

She is excited to be a part of the Raincoast team to inspire more people to connect, respect and protect nature. Maureen holds an interdisciplinary Master’s in marine biology and computer engineering.
