About Sasan Beni
Sasan Beni is a writer-turned-horticulturist. While studying Environmental Landscape Management at Seneca College in King City, he took up birdwatching–a hobby that quickly evolved into a passion for wildlife photography.
Before joining the TBG in 2020 as a Seasonal Horticulturist, Beni worked as a seasonal gardener at the Toronto Zoo.
In the last 3 years he has led over 20 guided birdwatching walks at TBG and Wilket Creek Ravine and written several articles for Trellis magazine about urban wildlife, which include his own photographs.
Beni says, “I’ve always considered myself lucky in my encounters with wildlife, but my greatest luck comes from my profession.”
