Rebecca Koroll is a second year Master of Environmental Studies in Planning Student. She attended Wilfrid Laurier University for her undergrad and has a bachelor’s degree with honours in Environmental Studies and Biology. Throughout her life she has been very interested in the environment and wildlife. At some point she considered becoming an aquarist and was chosen for a summer-long internship at the Bermuda Aquarium Museum and Zoo. She loves animals and has two pet bunnies, Buns and Lucy, and grew up with dogs!
However, Rebecca decided that animal husbandry was not for her and focused herself on conservation and planning for the protection of habitats with a keen interest in parks and protected areas as well as public participation in planning. During her internship in the Planning program, she worked with the Town of Richmond Hill as the Parks and Natural Heritage Intern and hopes to get back into a similar position in the future. She is also working as a Mitacs research intern with the Townships of Woolwich and Wellesley on public participation in planning.
