Ontario Trumpeter Swan recovery program. There has been a successful restoration of trumpeter swans, who were hunted to extinction in Ontario in the 1800s. Originated by Harry Lumsden, who led the drive to reintroduce the swans to their traditional Ontario environments. Susan Best is the Washago head volunteer.

Susan Best moved to Washago in 2010 from Brampton. She is a hobby photographer who stopped to take a picture when she spotted “seven swans a swimming” at Christmas of her first year in the area. That first sighting inspired a naturally research-driven personality to learn more about Trumpeter Swans and their history in Simcoe County. After 11 years, she has documented thousands of swans, taken 10,000+ photographs and now coordinates all tracking, education and rescue interventions in Severn Township for The Ontario Trumpeter Swan Restoration Program.
