Camille knew from a young age that she wanted to work with animals. Growing up she was able to visit many national parks, which contributed to her passion for learning about animals and conservation.
She received her Bachelors of Science in Zoology from University of California, Santa Barbara. The courses and opportunities at UCSB helped to further her knowledge about animal behavior, physiology, conservation science, and field research. Additionally, she conducted her own research project through the Monteverde Institute in Costa Rica in which she studied the competitive behavior of two species of damselfish near nesting sites. She also gained valuable experience while volunteering at the Santa Barbara Sea Center, where she got to help educate the public about local marine species.
After graduating, Camille worked at the Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network, where she cared for injured and abandoned wildlife to help re-release them back into the wild.
Now at Wildlife Learning Center, she loves caring for the wild animals and educating people about them and the importance of protecting their natural habitats. She aspires to continue gaining experience to further her career in wildlife conservation.
