Yuki Reiss, Kaua‘i Seabird HCP Coordinator
Yuki has been working as a biologist and in conservation planning for 20 years. She completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Oregon in 1994, and a master’s degree in fisheries population genetics from Central Washington University in 2003. Yuki worked for the U.S. Forest Service for 10 years, and prior to moving to Hawaii in 2012, she worked for a non-profit salmon recovery program in WA State. Through managing the KSHCP, Yuki is learning of the many parallels between salmon and seabirds, in terms of life history, the importance of protecting nesting habitat for animals that spend most their time at sea, and how complicated understanding threats to these species can be!
