The Firelight Group is pleased to announce that it has hired Charlotte Moores as a full-time Junior Researcher!  Charlotte is a former Firelight Research Intern and will continue her work in Traditional Knowledge and Use Studies from the Vancouver Office.

Charlotte comes from the Shuswap region of B.C. and holds a Joint Honours B.A. in Socio-Cultural Anthropology and International Development from McGill University.  Charlotte’s studies focused primarily on the gendered impacts of development, and during her degree Charlotte worked on community development initiatives in South Africa.  Charlotte also has experience working on community initiatives in Uganda and in Southeast Asia.

“My time working in local communities in South Africa helped me learn about the potential and importance of community based research, and I am thrilled that I am able to continue to learn about this research process in my new position at The Firelight Group.  Being able to integrate my passion for environmental advocacy and Indigenous Rights and Title is extremely rewarding, and I’m looking forward to building partnerships and learning more from the communities we work with.”
