Scott’s Story

Scott has a huge passion for protecting endangered species along the Thames River. His life’s work has revolved around reptiles at risk – he began studying turtles in a pond behind his home when he was only six years old! Today, Scott is one of Canada’s preeminent reptile researchers. When he’s not out on the Thames River protecting local species at risk, he is involved with several national committees for the recovery of species at risk in Canada.
