Supervisor Tour Guide, Animal Care

Thamar has been an animal lover for her entire life and has always hoped to have a career involving animals. While pursuing her Environmental Science degree at Mount Royal University, she began volunteering for a non-profit organization focused on admitting and rehabilitating injured and orphaned wildlife, the Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation. After a few years of volunteering, she applied for an internship position, and was lucky enough to obtain a position as a wildlife rehabilitation assistant. Her work as a wildlife rehabilitation assistant allowed her to realize and pursue her passion for animal care, as well as public education. Thamar also spent several years working at a busy 24-hour emergency veterinary clinic, which further confirmed her passion for providing exceptional animal care. Thamar had visited the Sanctuary several times and was a strong supporter of their mission, and when she saw an opportunity available to join the Yamnuska team as a tour guide/animal care attendant, she jumped at the opportunity! Thamar has been apart of the Sanctuary since February 2021 and she absolutely loves being able to share her passion with visitors as well as being able to create awareness and educate the public regarding wolves and wolfdogs!
