Brooke Rollins_Assistant Project Coordinator_2022

Brooke Rollins is from Calgary, Alberta, and her love for the outdoors was sparked by fishing with her father in the Rocky Mountains. Her passion for the environment motivated her to move to Vancouver Island to study geography at the University of Victoria in 2016. She naturally gravitated toward courses about coastal marine resource management and Indigenous traditional ecological knowledge. These interests led her to apply for a fisheries monitor position at Ecotrust Canada in 2020. 

After graduating from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Science in geography in the spring of 2020, Brooke moved to the traditional territory of the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations (Tofino) to pursue her career in fisheries as a dockside monitor. Since then, Brooke has gained experience in fish sampling, data collection, and marine species identification. Her aspirations to participate in sustainable marine resource economies motivated her to continue working in fisheries, but in a larger capacity. Brooke is currently the Fisheries Assistant Coordinator for Ecotrust Canada. 

Like many Tofino residents, Brooke loves to surf, snowboard, or hike the numerous trails in Clayoquot Sound. You can find her around Tofino volunteering at field schools with Raincoast Education Society, riding her bike on the multi-use path, or fishing off the shores of Tonquin Beach.
