Caitlyn G Campbell

Graduate Research Assistant
Outreach wildlife education w/ American kestrel

I received my B.S. in Animal Ecology with a concentration in wildife pre-veterinary care in 2016. Between my undergraduate completion and the beginning of my M.S., I served as the education director at a wildlife rehabilitation facility in southern Illinois and as a supervisor in the education department at the Kansas City Zoo. I have a keen interest in advancing wildlife welfare in captive settings, wildlife conservation, team management and empowerment, and connecting the public to the wild world around them.

My graduate research work focuses on environmental and conservation education accessibility and equitability in institutions affiliated with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), specifically with marginalized school communities. 

In my spare time I enjoy traveling, hiking, rock climbing, horseback riding, and quiet mornings at coffee shops.
