Sofi is a wildlife biologist who has been studying species at risk in the Fraser Valley for 10 years. She completed her Master’s degree at Simon Fraser University in 2010 where she studied the impact of changes in land use on barn owls, a threatened species in BC. Since then, she has continued her research on the species and focuses on conservation issues affecting barn owls such as the loss of habitat and nest sites, road mortality, and the risk of secondary poisoning from rat poisons. Sofi has a passion for outreach work and understands how important it is to create awareness and facilitate habitat stewardship for vulnerable species in the valley. She has worked with the Delta Farmland & Wildlife Trust, UBC, SFU, Environment Canada, and the Fraser Basin Council. She presents regularly to naturalist groups and municipalities in the region. Sofi joined the FVC team in July of 2016 and has been sharing her extensive bird knowledge with us ever since.
