Sea to Sky Invasive Species Council names new executive director

Micaela Anguita is the new executive director of the Sea to Sky Invasive Species Council.

The Sea to Sky Invasive Species Council (SSISC) has named a new executive director, with Micaela Anguita stepping into the role as of April 15.

“I'm excited to once again join the SSISC team in tackling invasive species issues in the region,” she said in a release.

Anguita brings with her a raft of previous experience with the SSISC, having worked in various roles between 2018 and 2022 across the breadth of the organization, giving her experience in eco-restoration, conservation, GIS mapping, and invasive species control and management.

Anguita steps into the position vacated by long-time SSISC executive director Clare Greenberg, who moved on to a new role with the provincial government after 10 years art the helm of the SSISC.

“Though it will be hard to fill Clare's shoes, I hope to apply all the knowledge she imparted to me over the years,” said Anguita. “I feel honoured to step into this role for an organization that has accomplished so much.”

Anguita holds a Bachelor of Science in natural resource conservation from UBC, with an emphasis on science management, as well as an Advanced Diploma in GIS from BCIT.

Having worked as a restoration and conservation project manager on the unceded lands of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Lil̓wat7úl Nations for many years, Mica prioritizes traditional Indigenous knowledge in landscape-level planning.

SSISC board chair (and Pique columnist), Leslie Anthony, said the organization was pleased to welcome Anguita into the role.

“This is a complex job with many funding and government partners, a raft of new staff to train each summer, a lot of education and outreach, and a huge area to monitor from West Vancouver to D'Arcy that encompasses several ecosystems, each with its own invasive threats,” he said in the release. 

“Mica brings an impressive, in-depth understanding of all these moving parts to the table, as well the breadth of her other conservation and restoration work in the corridor. Having worked with Mica in various capacities, I’ve become acquainted with her knowledge, expertise and professionalism and look forward to having her join SSISC’s already impressive and capable team.”
