Certificate in Spatial Information Systems , 2014
B.Sc. (Environmental Science), 2014
Yoko Lu is a B.Sc. Environmental Science graduate of Spring 2014. Interested in the environment, especially in biodiversity and conservation since childhood, she hopes to pursue a career in wildlife conservation.
Yoko volunteered extensively throughout January 2011 to June 2014, once with the Stanley Park Ecology Society (SPES) as an Eco Ranger, which was her first experience volunteering in her field while attending SFU. Other experiences included being a bird monitor and a stint in habitat maintenance, an Educator at the Vancouver Aquarium and as a board member of Sustainble SFU.
Yoko played a lead role in the establishment of the Wildlife Conservation Club in Spring 2012. The club grew quickly and collaborated with several groups for joint events, such as movie screening with the Wilderness Committee and Beatty Museum tour with the UBC Environmental Science Student Association. The club has also fundraised for SPES and adopted heron nest.
Throughout all this, Yoko’s desire in wildlife conservation has grown. She has a dream of connecting universities and its students globally, as well as saving species at risk from extinction. Her current goal is to travel the world volunteering and taking part in internships where she can learn wildlife conservation through hands-on experience before embarking on a longer-term carrer.
During her free time, Yoko enjoys nature by participating in outdoor activities such as camping and hiking regardless of season.
