Kristen Walters, Lower Fraser Salmon Conservation Program Coordinator, Raincoast Conservation Foundation
Kristen Walters supports Raincoast’s work in restoring salmon habitat by researching long-term decision-making and funding structures to help guide the future management of the Lower Fraser River. This work builds on the Vision for salmon habitat in the Lower Fraser, a multi-year visioning process developed with community members and organizations in the Lower Fraser to discuss issues, concerns and considerations in developing this vision, which has an overarching priority of long-term ecological resilience. Kristen previously completed her M.Sc in Biology at Simon Fraser University, where she researched predator-prey interactions in salmon watersheds. She also studied at the University of British Columbia where she focused on environmental history and law.
