Wild by Nature. Well, maybe a little bit herself, but Debb is really well prepared to handle this role as an educator of how to live in harmony with the wild animal population.
We met at a welcome to Sooke lunch event at the Community Gardens hosted by Phoebe Dunbar and crew, where Debb along with her partner Nitya Harris gave us the lo-down when it comes to understanding our responsibility to managing our waste properly to avoid encounters with our local Sooke Bears.[sam id=”15″ codes=”true”]Debb is passionate about helping us understand the reality, it’s usually our fault for the encounters. Debb is also a strong advocate for the animals, none of them should have to be put down: they are just doing what animals do.
We are very lucky to have a woman like you in our community Debb!
On a personal note, I thoroughly enjoyed our pre-taping discussion where we really shared some good real life stories. I look forward to be seeing much more of you Debb.
Thanks, you’re a Gem!
