OUR BRAND AMBASSADORS
At a young age, Tyra frequently visited Vancouver Island. She instantly fell in love with its beauty, diversity and warmth (not just the weather, but also the people).
She moved to beautiful Vancouver Island from Alberta four years ago and has been exploring ever since. Here on the island, she found her passion for forestry conservation and sustainability. "I was amazed by the sheer size of the trees and their unique habitat that creates so much biodiversity." By exploring the vast forests of Vancouver Island through hiking and camping, she was inspired to attend university to work towards a degree in Forestry and Environmental Management.
She looks to further her knowledge about coastal BC's ecosystems and what she can do to help keep our forests, rivers and ocean healthy. Tyra is a lover of old-growth forests who hopes to help promote these endangered giants' conservation.
Check out Tyra's full story in the Speakers Series section.
Val originally grew up in Quebec, Canada. Having a deep passion for the marine world pushed her to sell everything she owned to move to Vancouver Island in 2017.
She has a degree in marine biology, and is an accredited paddleboard instructor, but you can also find her in the waves along the coast surfing and kiteboarding. She is one of the few female captains in the area, driving big and small vessels for a local whale watching company. "No need to say that I have spent most of my life on the ocean."
She avidly supports a minimalist lifestyle, with everything that she owns having a specific purpose. She is currently in the design and planning stages to build her own tiny house.
Val was an easy choice to ask to represent Salt Legacy as an ocean ambassador. She has a true connection to the sea and chooses to fight and respect it at all costs. "I simply love the idea behind Salt Legacy, giving a second life to items that would otherwise end up in a landfill is truly inspiring."
Stay tuned for her full story and fun interview in up and coming Salt Legacy Speakers Series.
