Lori Dunn

AFC Conservation Artist of the Month for January, 2008

For several years Lori Dunn gave Keeper talks at the Toronto zoo including the "Meet the Snake keeper" presentation. She now continues to educate adults and children about the demise of our ecosystems specifically in regards to native reptiles.
 
She initiated and guided an annual "Frog-walk" program for the Millbrook Valley Trail Association. Children and adults learned the different frog calls of native species, how to visually identify them and how to protect native amphibians in this delicate ecosytem. She is a member of the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Center where she continues to educate the public on the status of native Ontario turtles and is often involved in their rescue and rehabilitation. She has participated in local wildlife conservation efforts such as the Wilds of Pelee and the Spotted Turtle Recovery project.
 
Proceeds from the sale of various of her artworks have been donated to conservation organizations throughout the world including Bat Conservation International and Ape Action Africa
 
Lori continues to provide financial support through donations and the sale of her art for The Canadian Organization of Tropical Education and Rainforest Conservation (COTERC) which helps preserve habitat in Costa Rica.
 
Lori  is thrilled to be combining her two interests
