Intan Kardal

Intan Kardal’s interest in the environment and its complex relationship with people, policies, and the economy made the Environmental Science program a good fit for her. These interests took her outside of the classroom doing co-op placements with Vancouver General Hospital as a research assistant on an asthma study and Fisheries and Oceans Canada as a fisheries technician in Ontario.

Currently she is a fish culturist with Fisheries and Oceans Canada at the Chilliwack River Salmon Hatchery.  She works to conserve and manage salmon with a focus on rebuilding vulnerable stocks and maintaining populations for commercial, recreational, and First Nations fisheries. She also works with the Canadian Forces as a naval reservist working with youth in the Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Program.
