Volunteer Profile: Greg JeddoreJune 25, 2018
Meet Greg Jeddore, a member of our NL Advisory Committee.
For the past 17 years, Jeddore has worked with the Miawpukek First Nation (MFN) Natural Resources Department as their manager. He got involved with the ASCF a little over a year ago.
“I’m an Indigenous person that comes from a very strong background in the aboriginal traditional way of life in protecting all Mother Earth’s creations whether it is by land or sea,” he said. “The ASCF has the same passion and interest as Indigenous people do in the protection of our species for future generations to come. That’s why I became involved with the program; to help communities and institutes to come together in developing funding programs that would benefit our species’ survival for generations to come.”
Jeddore said he stays involved with the program because it offers funding opportunities for the protection of species and increases awareness among communities and government on the importance of our wild stocks.
He adds he believes in what the ASCF stands for and that it is important to educate others and join in the fight in protecting the Atlantic salmon.
Volunteers are crucial to the work ASCF does, and each month we will introduce you to one of our stellar volunteers to say thank you for all the work they do in Atlantic salmon conservation.
