Ottawa-Carleton Wildlife Centre
Donna DuBreuil is the co-founder and president of the Ottawa-Carleton Wildlife Centre. The Centre, founded in 1987, was established to support a better understanding and respect for wildlife in the face of rapid development and habitat loss. This is achieved through a Wildlife Education Program taken to elementary, secondary and university students.
It also operates Community Outreach and Awareness Programs, Nature Discovery Workshops held at the Centre, a website offering comprehensive solutions to human-wildlife conflicts, pilot projects in the community that demonstrate ‘best practices’ in furthering co-existence, and works closely with other environmental and animal protection organizations across North America in the development of constructive strategies to promote and protect biodiversity.
