Krista has enjoyed working with Pacific Wild in various capacities since she came to Denny Island in 2008. She first came to the central coast as a graduate student to study the nesting habitat of Sandhill Cranes. Prior to that she studied wild elephant corridors in southern India and worked on Culturally Modified Tree surveys in Quatsino First Nation territory on Vancouver Island with her partner. She has an MSc. in Ecology (Pondicherry University, India) and one in Geography (University of Victoria, B.C.), a BSc. in Geography (UVic) and a diploma in Ecological Restoration (UVic). Krista and her family's love of sailing and old-growth forests drew them to the Great Bear, but she's since become enamoured with bogs as well, which are common on the outer coast. She lives with her family at their home on Denny Island, where she is slowly building a fantastic food garden.
