Hi! My name is Lorelle Sunduk and I was raised in Prince Rupert, British Columbia.
Growing up on the North Coast helped shaped me into an individual who is passionate about nature and conservation. I consider myself lucky to have been raised by parents who immersed me in the outdoors from an early age- I spent the majority of my summers fishing off the dock and exploring tidal pools while my parents both worked in the fishing industry.
My early experiences drove me to pursue a career in fisheries conservation. In 2017, I completed the Bachelor of Natural Resource Protection program at Vancouver Island University.
For most of the year, I work with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans as an Aquatic Science Technician. With DFO, I get to work with an amazing crew of technicians and biologists to collect data on Pacific Salmon through various ocean and river sampling projects. I also get to work hand-in-hand with commercial fishermen from all over B.C.’s coast and am privileged to listen to their stories and hear their concerns about the fishing industry and changing ocean environment. Currently, I am employed as a Habitat Restoration Technician with the North Coast Skeena First Nations Stewardship Society.
Outside of work, I am kept busy volunteering with several non-profits including (but not limited to...) the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue and the Prince Rupert Salmonid Enhancement Society. I look forward to learning and working with everyone in the Ocean Bridge Program!!!
