Collaborator, Conservation Officer for Cambridge Bay
Monica is originally from Kugluktuk, but moved to Cambridge Bay four years ago. Since she started walking, she can remember following and watching her parents harvesting and trapping; her father is still an active hunter. By watching her parents, she developed a passion for going out on land, especially in the outpost area. She works in the wildlife field because that’s what she grew up doing – being on the land. She likes to listen to people as a way of learning. She’s always teaching her family that there is no right or wrong way of doing things, and that we’re learning new things every day.
