Alysha Griffin
Communication and Municipal Outreach Coordinator

Alysha has joined our team as a Communication and Municipal Outreach Coordinator working on projects related to the Kespukwitk Conservation Collaborative. Originally from rural Prince Edward Island, Alysha moved to Nova Scotia after finishing her Bachelor of Science at Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John's, NL. Having lived in three out of four Atlantic Provinces, Alysha has a particular affinity for the ocean and coastal areas. She recently completed her Master of Environmental Studies at Dalhousie, with her thesis research focused on ecological and social connectivity in the Kespukwitk/Southwest region of Nova Scotia. Alysha’s interests focus on the social side of conservation, in particular conservation social science, local knowledge and community engagement in conservation, and environmental and social psychology. When she’s not working, Alysha spends much of her free time enjoying her endless list of hobbies, including painting, gardening, and hiking with her dog Arrow (pictured).
