Lauren Thomas

Communications Manager

Lauren was practically raised in the woods. The majority of her childhood was spent camping, hiking and learning to love and respect our shared environment. When not outdoors, Lauren could be found obsessively rewatching Sir David Attenborough’s BBC Earth documentaries. Struck by the storytelling and imagery of these films, she realized she wanted to learn how to get people excited about science and conservation, just like Sir David did. With two degrees focused in science communication under her belt, Lauren is excited to use her skillset to help mobilize knowledge about our natural world and the threats it’s facing. When she’s not working, things look about the same as they did throughout Lauren’s childhood – you can find her hiking Toronto’s ravine system, at the cottage, or camping in Algonquin Park.
