Team | High Elevation and Columbia Basin Water Monitoring Framework Program Coordinator
Growing up, Claire wanted to be a zookeeper which led to her studying Wildlife and Conservation Biology at Deakin University in Melbourne. Spending most of her time outside – camping, running, biking and enjoying the outdoors – she further fuelled her passion for conservation. After working for zoos in Australia and Canada she realized it wasn't for her and upon moving to Nelson B.C., began working with water through a local non-profit organization. Here she discovered her passion for the conservation and advocacy of this precious resource. Claire now works for the High Elevation Monitoring Program and the Columbia Basin Water Monitoring Framework conducting fieldwork and sourcing funding opportunities to sustain these valuable programs.
