Leor Oren | DESERT CENTRE MANAGER
250-495-2470 | firstname.lastname@example.org
Leor studied Natural Resources and Conservation at the University of British Columbia. During and after his degree he was involved with projects with the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and BC Conservation Foundation including amphibian surveys, wildlife migrations tracking, insect population monitoring and more. During his latest adventure he was monitoring fishing vessels near the shores of Vancouver Island, only to leave the rain and the rocking boats for the unique natural ecosystem of the southern Okanagan. Leor is a health junky and you can always talk to him about nutrition, human physiology, yoga, gymnastics, and martial arts. If you knock on his door on the weekend and he is not inside making Shakshuka, he is out hiking, climbing, rappelling or canyoneering.
