Jamille McLeod was born with a huge sense of adventure. From an early age, she knew that if she was not going to be an explorer like Indiana Jones, she was going to work with animals – like Jane Goodall. So after earning a degree in Environmental Sciences and a diploma in Biological Field Studies, she followed her dream to Ecuador, where she spent over a year watching monkey behaviour in the Amazon. During her time in the jungle, she discovered a new passion for wildlife health and education. These new interests brought her back to school in Alberta, where she completed a diploma in Animal Health Care.
In 2005, Jamille then moved to Saskatoon with the dream of starting up a Wildlife Rehabilitation and Educational facility. In 2006, WRSOS officially took flight, founded by an amazing group of people with similar passions. Jamille was an integral part of the organization from the beginning, focusing her energy on developing the WRSOS hotline and educating the public about wildlife.
As WRSOS has grown over the years, Jamille has found a job she absolutely loves and a family and home she adores. While working at Environment and Climate Change Canada as a Wildlife Health Technician, Jamille continues to enjoy her involvement with WRSOS as a volunteer, contributing to the growing success of this organization that helps to keep wildlife wild.
