Jean Knowles

Jean Knowles has built a reputation for excellence in her 30 years as an interpreter of the natural history and culture of Atlantic Canada. She grew up on the edge of the Cape Sable Island Important Birding Area (IBA) in Nova Scotia, a childhood that no doubt influenced her love for the natural beauty of the region. Her commitment to the preservation of Newfoundland and Labrador's cultural heritage is apparent through her years as a director of the province's Folk Arts Society, while her service as chair of the Friends of Cape St. Mary's and her crusade against light-induced seabird mortality reveal her dedication to the pelagic birds of the region.
