Christina is the program and grants manager at WildAid in San Francisco, where she works to raise global awareness of wildlife crises, strengthen legislation and promote behavioral change as it pertains to consumption of wildlife products. Christina helps to develop, oversee and secure funding for WildAid’s campaigns to protect rhinos, elephants, pangolins, sharks and sea turtles. Before joining WildAid, Christina designed enrichment programs for river otters and flying foxes at the Oakland Zoo, taught ecology to youth at summer camps in Massachusetts, and worked at a design agency. Having grown up on a lake in a tiny village in Western Massachusetts, she has always had a love for the outdoors, particularly hiking and backpacking, and is passionate about sustainable food projects. Christina earned a B.A. in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley. Though a dedicated environmentalist from the get-go, it was a course in wildlife ecology that inspired her to build upon her love of animals and pursue a career in wildlife conservation.
