Meet Krista Sittler
We’re facing some pretty challenging management questions right now. Things are very complicated – not based on science – mostly on emotion. One of the tools that we’re not really taking advantage of is using local knowledge from people that are on the land, seeing what’s happening, year after year.
Krista grew up in Fort Nelson, BC where she developed a passion for the north along with hunting and fishing. She pursued a Biology degree (Hons) at the University of Victoria, then completed her Master’s degree at the University of Northern British Columbia, focused on Stone’s sheep and elk response to fire. She is currently working as a wildlife biologist for Wildlife Infometrics Inc., and her research is primarily focused on ungulate responses to habitat alterations. Krista lives on a cattle/horse ranch in Prince George with her husband and three young children.
