KUPU AmeriCorps Intern 2014
Christa began as the AmeriCorps intern in 2012/2013 for the Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project and will continue on in 2014 as well. Along with the rest of the MFBRP team, she is responsible for finding and monitoring Maui Parrotbill and collecting data on other sensitive Hawaiian honeycreepers.
Hailing from the Midwest, Christa received a B.S. in Botany and Environmental Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and spent her free time developing and sharing a love for birds. Having worked in environmental education and conservation across Wisconsin, Ecuador and California, she looks forward to following her passion for avian ecology with MFBRP.
