Chelsea Greer,Wolf Conservation Program Coordinator

As a graduate student in the Canid Conservation Science lab at the University of Calgary, Chelsea was inspired to learn more about how to effectively advocate for wolves while completing her thesis. She joined the Raincoast team in 2020 to help develop the Wolf Conservation Program and continues to coordinate and deliver the program’s various initiatives. 

Following her passion for wildlife conservation and coexistence, Chelsea completed her master’s degree in Geography at the UofC where she studied the behavioural ecology of rewilded elephants in northern Thailand. Her graduate research used a compassionate model of conservation to investigate the rehabilitative and ecological needs of individual animals transitioning from captive to free-living settings. 

Chelsea holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of British Columbia where she majored in Applied Animal Biology. It was during this degree that she developed a keen interest in animal ethics and how animal welfare science applies to free living wild populations.

Born and raised in British Columbia, Chelsea enjoys spending her free time hiking the local mountains and diving the cold waters of the Salish Sea. She has volunteered at various local environmental and animal advocacy groups including the SPCA, Fur-Bearers, Society for Humane Science and Vancouver Aquarium’s Marine Mammal Rescue Center.

Chelsea is excited to be part of the Raincoast team and inspire people to understand, value, and protect wildlife and wildlife habitats in the place she has the privilege to call home.
