About your Bird Guide

“Hello! My name is Kim (they/she) and I’m currently a species-at-risk biologist at the Canadian Wildlife Service and a co-founder of the newly fledged greater Vancouver* area chapter of the Feminist Bird Club. My family’s settler roots are on the Canadian Prairies, but the rest of me migrated here to (*so-called) Vancouver in 2013. I’ve been fiercely passionate about nature since I was a child, which eventually led me to my chosen bird-focused career. Along the way, I’ve encountered a lot of misogyny as a femme human; unfortunately, birdwatching hasn’t been immune to that. Consider joining me if you’ve shared those experiences or just want to be on a bird walk with other women and femmes, no matter your birding level!”

Inspired by the National Audubon Society’s Let’s Go Birding Together series, Birding with Me walks welcome in members of different communities led by experts of shared identity to explore birding together and meet new people. Check out the Birding with Me webpage for all events.
