I paddle almost daily from late April thru October, sometimes up to three times a day for 1-3 hours at time at mainly two conservation areas. Both areas I consider as in my back yard having grown up at both. I take my camera (I'm onto my 4th one) and start photographing wildlife. At first it was mainly snapping turtles but everything was game. I had studied outdoor recreation and sciences at university but I teach other subjects. I have over 20 years of photographic records of wildlife in these two areas which some have been shared with ebird, Adopt-a-pond (Metro Toronto Zoo), The Herpetofaunal atlas of Ontario and Canada, the conservation authority and the ministry of natural resources. It was one of the conservation authority's birding person who suggested inaturalist.
