About the Presenter

Vicki Wojcik, Pollinator Partnership
Vicki has been working to protect and promote pollinators with Pollinator Partnership since 2011. As Director she oversees P2 Canada’s research and programs, keeping on top of new and emerging pollinator issues and managing programs that include pollinator habitat conservation and landscape management assessments; understanding and enhancing agroecosystems; land use and pesticide policy review; support for threatened and critical species; and ecosystem service assessments in Canada. Vicki joined the San Francisco team after completing her Ph.D. in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management at UC Berkeley. In 2015 she returned home to Toronto with the expansion of P2 Canada. Vicki’s interest in pollinators was sparked during her undergraduate studies at the University of Guelph and has continued ever since. Her graduate research focused on understanding how native bees use gardens and habitats in cities. This focus on pollinators in human-dominated landscapes has continued throughout her career. Vicki’s contributions to pollinator research and conservation include numerous peer-reviewed papers, book chapters, policy pieces, planting guides, and technical manuals. The outdoors has always been calling this city girl who enjoys skiing, sailing, hiking, and any excuse to get out of town.
