Amanda Colbert is a Lead Educator, Naturalist, and Deckhand for The Salish Sea School. She is passionate about wildlife, their habitats, and preserving the natural resources that this unique bioregion provides.
At eight years old, the movie Free Willy was the gateway to Orcas for Amanda, and that passion eventually brought her here. Through obtaining her marine naturalist certification, she was introduced to this region’s avian world and found a fast love for birds! Over the last several years she’s become an avid birder and hobbyist photographer. Amanda is assisting The Salish Sea School in gathering survey and behavioral data on the endangered Tufted Puffins that breed at Smith Island in cooperation with WDFW and Oikonos.
UPCOMING PROGRAM: June 13th – Jared Strawderman will present a program on the Steigerwald National Wildlife Refuge located in Vancouver, WA
