Chris joined MFBRP in December 2012 where he assists the rest of the MFBRP team collecting productivity and demographic data aimed at the conservation and recovery of the Kiwikiu and other endangered forest passerines. He is also responsible for managing these data and helping produce reports to communicate the results of this research.
Chris is originally from the mainland where he received a B.A. in Biology from Earlham College and an M.S. in Population & Conservation from Texas State University. He has lived and worked in many parts of the country working with other endangered bird species, most recently the endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler in Austin, TX.
