Congratulations to Monika Neufeld on receiving the University Medal from Dalhousie
K’JIPUKTUK/HALIFAX – The Nova Scotia Chapter of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS-NS) is pleased to congratulate Monika Neufeld on receiving the University Medal in Marine Biology from Dalhousie University at the spring convocation.
Monika graduated from Dalhousie University last week with a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Marine Biology. The University Medal is awarded to the student with the highest academic standing in the department, which is a significant achievement reflective of the hard work and dedication Monika has displayed throughout her studies at Dalhousie.
In May, Monika was hired by CPAWS-NS as a Marine Conservation Assistant. She will be working on several marine protected area campaigns and supporting the overall conservation work of the organization.
“Monika is a rising star,” says Chris Miller, Executive Director for CPAWS-NS. “As a science-based conservation organization, we work to attract upcoming talent in the field of conservation biology. Monika is a fantastic addition to our team and we look forward to working with her as she expands her talents and skillsets with conservation advocacy.”
“We’re very grateful to have Monika working with us this summer on marine conservation campaigns,” says Reanne Harvey, Conservation Campaigner with CPAWS NS. “She is a pleasure to work with and this award is very well deserved”.
