Thank You Shona!

Shona Aitken, Wolf Hollow’s Education Coordinator, is retiring at the end of March after working with the organization for over 33 years. Shona started out in 1990 as an animal care volunteer a couple of mornings a week, but before she knew it, she was volunteering full-time. With a degree in Biology and Environmental Science and experience in environmental education from working with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and as a Countryside Ranger in her home country of Scotland, she was a natural fit to become Wolf Hollow’s first Education Coordinator in 1992. But she hasn’t only been involved in the education aspect of our organization. Over the years she has also turned her hand to other aspects of Wolf Hollow’s work, taking on rehabber, volunteer coordinator and director duties when the need arose.  The education outreach program has grown over the years and many of you may have met Shona at our education booth at events, at summer talks at parks, in school classes or children’s summer programs. Shona has enjoyed her work at Wolf Hollow and is happy to have played a part in raising people’s awareness of and compassion for local wildlife. Now she is looking forward to having more time to spend with her husband Ross, hiking, gardening, travelling and of course, watching wildlife.
