Colette's professional background is in archaeology and teaching youth and adults with a BA(Hons) History/Archaeology from Anglia University, Cambridge. After several years in Asia and Europe teaching multiple variations of English language learning, she moved back to the west coast and up to Denny Island in the Great Bear Rainforest.
Colette joined Pacific Wild in early 2011 with social media/outreach campaign work at the time of the Great Bear RAVE and the No Pipeline, No Tankers movement. As Pacific Wild has evolved, Colette's role has grown to include event organization.
Utilizing the literature, visual media, curriculum materials and awesome remote Great Bear LIVE camera feeds, Colette's dream is to bring the Great Bear to people all over the world. Colette's strong belief is that through education, outreach and awareness, our coast can and will be conserved and protected.
