Today, ALUS is pleased to announce the hiring of Koral Wysocki. Koral joins the team in the position of Partnerships Manager.

As Partnerships Manager, Koral will support ALUS Senior Vice President of Policy and Partnerships, Lara Ellis.

“Koral’s experience helping build conservation partnerships and her dedication to grassroots and community-led environmental initiatives are valuable assets to help strengthen and secure ALUS’ network of partnerships and projects,” said Lara Ellis, ALUS Vice-President of Policy and Partnerships.

Most recently, Koral was the Director of Programs and Partnerships at the Carolinian Canada Coalition. There, she helped develop collaborative initiatives, such as In the Zone and the Deshkan Ziibi Conservation Impact Bond that served the organization’s mission to seed, save and steward healthy landscapes.

“ALUS is first and foremost a grassroots organization. Koral’s knowledge, skills and experience in community partnerships are an ideal match to grow its movement of dedicated famers and ranchers creating landscape impacts,” said Bryan Gilvesy, ALUS CEO.

Originally from Burlington, Koral’s love of natural spaces and wildlife led her to pursue a research internship in Zimbabwe, followed by a Master’s Degree in Conservation and Rural Development at the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology in the UK, where she completed her research in Cambodia.

Koral’s experiences have imparted a profound understanding of the connection between respectful community interaction and transformative approaches to environmental conservation. She continues to foster this understanding through her involvement on the board of directors of the Global Institute of Forest Therapy and as a certified Regenerative Practitioner.

“I am thrilled to join the ALUS team and most excited for the opportunity to learn from and support the incredible network of farmers and ranchers who work with the land to nourish our communities,” said Koral.

Koral is based in Hamilton, Ontario.
