Project Manager, Mining Restoration
Biologist, M. Sc.
Béatrice Capolla began her post-secondary studies at Cégep de Saint-Laurent, where she completed the DEC-Techniques program in bioecology. During this program, she discovered an interest in research as well as in the decontamination of soil heavy metals. She then continued her studies at the University of Quebec in Rimouski by completing a bachelor's degree in biology with a concentration in ecology. During the summer between her two years of undergraduate studies, Béatrice had the opportunity to participate in a research project taking place at a mining site in northern Quebec. This experience allowed her to understand the importance of the mining industry, but also to see that it can have a significant impact on the environment. Therefore, following a master's degree in biology on forest regeneration at Laval University, Béatrice joined the mining restoration and bioremediation department of Viridis Terra. Being passionate about ecology, the environment, and research, she was brought to work within this team with the aim of contributing to a greener world for future generations.
