Miki Eslake

Communications and Events Coordinator

Miki grew up in the territory of the Lil’wat Nation, near Mt. Currie, surrounded by bears, horses, and alpacas. She developed a love of wildlife and nature at a young age, but it took her a while to realize that as something important and rare. Miki studied Geography (Environment and Sustainability) at UBC and spent five years working as a Park Interpreter in the Lower Mainland, hoping to inspire in others a love for the natural world (and especially banana slugs!). Currently living in East Vancouver, on the beautiful and wet territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples, Miki’s favourite thing to say to people is that there is no better way to experience the rainforest than in the rain. She spends her spare time birding, cooking, planning outdoor adventures, and drinking tea and/or beer. She is excited to be part of a team helping to conserve the Fraser watershed for the benefit of all who live near it, human and non-human alike.
