Laura King feeds pieces of squid to a juvenile red-tailed tropicbird (Phaethon rubricauda) on Ile aux Aigrettes, Mauritius. These seabirds are being raised on the island to support ecosystem restoration as a whole, as healthy seabird populations support other species on the island too. Credit: Matt Boyd

Avoid the office. And help save the planet. These were Laura King’s guiding principles when she began her studies in wildlife biology. She couldn’t have known they would lead her on a mission to the Indian Ocean to serve as Canada’s New Noah. King is the latest Noah in a tradition which, for almost 30 years, has been protecting Canada’s diversity.

Imagine the worst case scenario 70 years from now. The unending expanse of trees and lakes in Northern Ontario contain no wildlife at all. The ocean is an empty promise with nothing but seaweed and garbage, and the same for the mountains, prairies and rainforests of the West.

Seems far-fetched?
