Project Lead

Whitelaw Twining, a law firm in Vancouver, and its Sustainability Committee is collaborating with Stanley Park Ecology Society(SPES) to celebrate Earth Day. This event is intended to get participants involved in supporting the restoration of valuable habitat n Stanley Park through invasive plant removal.

Project Description

During the Whitelaw Twining Earth Day Stewardship Event, participants will learn about the local Vancouver ecology and the important role of conservation and stewardship in Stanley Park. The event will start with a gorgeous plant-based Mediterranean lunch catered by Chickpea Restaurant at Whitelaw Twinning’s Vancouver Office location, and then will head to Stanley Park to meet up with our Stanly Park Ecology Society representative to learn about the invasive species that we will be removing from the park and how to do so safely and effectively.

This project has been created in commemoration of the lives of all the victims of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, including two Ocean Bridge ambassadors, Danielle Moore and Micah Messent. We aspire to carry on their legacy and commitment to making the world a better place by creating long-lasting impacts with a firm commitment to driving positive change for the environment and our ocean. We will never forget the light that Danielle and Micah brought to the world and will continue to keep them in our hearts. To learn more about these two amazing people, please visit: Honouring Danielle and Micah  – Ocean Wise. This work is partially funded by the Commemoration Fund for Victims of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 Tragedy.

What was your biggest challenge?

I think for me, since I had to work with the HR department and have things approved, receiving final approvals from our firm and having to communicate with SPES as well was the biggest challenge. Persistence was definitely needed and it taught me a lot about how to communicate clearly when project planning!

What was your most valuable takeaway?

The importance of community and connection with people!
