Welcome to Dr. Sarah Otto as the new Chair of The Nature Trust of BC Board of Directors. As an acclaimed evolutionary geneticist, she brings her perspective as a scientist and her commitment to conservation to her new role.

“I think it would be fantastic if, throughout the province, we all took pride in working together through The Nature Trust of BC, to protect land around where we live, work, and play so that future generations can also enjoy BC’s amazing natural landscapes,” says Dr. Otto.

She is a professor in the Department of Zoology and Biodiversity Research Centre at the University of British Columbia. She has been honoured with numerous awards including the MacArthur Fellowship – commonly known as the genius grant.
