Laurent Nikolaiczuk was awarded the Alberta Chapter of the Wildlife Society’s 2012 Goddard Scholarship while completing a diploma in Renewable Resource Management at Lethbridge College. He knew from the start that he wanted a career in conservation enforcement, and since 2014 has been a Park Warden with Parks Canada. He’s stationed in the Northwest Territories, looking after remote backcountry in beautiful Nahanni and Nááts’įhch’oh National Park Reserves.
The scholarship certainly helped during those leaner college years and paved the way to his current career, as well as field work researching Peregrine Falcons while he was based in Nunavut. Thanks, ACTWS!
