Pamela Flick is the California Program Coordinator for Defenders of Wildlife, a national wildlife conservation organization dedicated to the protection of species and the habitats on which they depend. Based in Sacramento, she serves as the California Program Director’s liaison to federal and state agencies, elected officials and their staff, the media, Defenders’ staff and members, and the general public. Her core programmatic issues include California condor conservation and recovery with emphasis on impacts from spent lead ammunition; public lands management, especially in the Sierra Nevada; increasing public awareness about California’s marine environment and the federally threatened southern sea otter; reducing human-wildlife conflicts; and working to protect other species native to the Golden State, including Pacific fisher, northern and California spotted owls and San Joaquin kit fox.
Before joining Defenders of Wildlife in April 2005, Pamela worked to preserve California’s public lands and rivers as Communications Coordinator and Administrative Director for the California Wild Heritage Campaign.
Pamela graduated summa cum laude from California State University, Sacramento, with a Bachelor Degree in Environmental Studies and a minor in Biological Sciences. She also earned Associate Degrees in Biological Sciences and Liberal Studies from Sierra College. In her free time, Pamela enjoys live music, gardening, photography, birding, games, and spending time in the great outdoors, opting for the road less traveled with her husband in their 1971 VW Westfalia.
