Profile: Neil Fletcher (B.Sc, M.R.M.) is the Wetlands Education Program Manager for the BC Wildlife Federation. He is passionate about protecting water and ecosystems. Neil started out in Ottawa, Ontario where he prepared a management plan for a provincially significant wetland next to a housing development site. He later moved on to monitoring nutrient loading in the waters surrounding the RCMP horse breeding facility where he strapped on chest waders and pounded groundwater monitoring wells into grassy waterway filled with poop. Now Neil is concerned with the multifaceted wetlands of British Columbia and helps to empower communities to protect, conserve and restore them. In addition to this exciting work, he sits on the Wetland Stewardship Partnership with other provincial players including the Ministry of Environment, Canadian Wildlife Service, Ducks Unlimited and BC Naturalists.
