Kris is a biologist with eight years of field and research experience. His interest in science and biology started in his hometown of Lancaster, California, where a course in Environmental Science opened his eyes to the perils of pollution and environmental degradation. He completed a B.S. in Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology and an M.S. in Avian Sciences, both at UC Davis. For his master’s thesis, Kris studied brood size and nesting phenology of western and Clark’s grebes in northern California. He has also studied seabirds in central Oregon, southern California, and the Gulf of Mexico and marsh birds throughout Idaho. He has participated in boat-based fish surveys in Suisun Marsh, non-native fish removal using electrofishing techniques in the Sierra Nevada, and elk calve capture and VHF transmitter attachment in eastern Idaho. Working for Colibri has allowed Kris to continue his passion for wildlife conservation while learning new, innovative ways to address real-world conservation challenges. Kris spends much of his leisure time outdoors where he pursues many hobbies including camping, hiking, and mountain biking.
