Holly has been engaged in conservation partnerships for over 20 years at the state, regional and national levels, and has put that experience to good use with Pacific Birds. Her 40-year career included natural resource research, management and policy. Across the U.S., her work has spanned wildlife science, mining regulation, land reclamation, government policy and more. She worked with the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, coordinating the Crucial Habitat Assessment Tool program, mapping and prioritizing habitat across 17 western states and 3 provinces. She also is on the board of the Wildlife Ecology Institute.
Holly has been a Pacific Birds board member for a decade, and served as Co-Chair for 4 years. She loves being part of the great work we do in providing resources to our partners for habitat conservation in a vast landscape spanning the Pacific Islands to Alaska. She considers the challenges in our flyways daunting, but also full of opportunities. Holly is grateful for the chance to contribute to the success of Pacific Birds.
Holly is making the most of her retirement, traveling the world and learning photography.
