About Doug Fenton

Doug Fenton is in his first term as a trustee for Thetis Island Local Trust Committee. After a paramedic career, which took him across the globe, Doug moved to Thetis Island close to his childhood home of Saltair. Upon completing a masters degree in environmental practice, his interest in environmental regulation and ecosystem management polices led him to be a part of the Islands Trust. Doug appreciates being part of a government focused on finding solutions and creative ways to better manage the unique ecology of the Islands Trust Area. Doug is on the Trust Programs committee and Islands Trust Conservancy Board.
