Tanner Humphries leads our Community Wildlife Monitoring Project and represents us with Wildlife Camera Network Northwest.
A native of the Pacific Northwest, Tanner grew up nestled in the arms of the Olympic and Cascade Mountain ranges. His passion for protecting and conserving this wild and biodiverse area lead him to receive his B.S. in Environmental Sciences from Western Washington University and his M.S. in Wildlife Biology from the University of Montana. His Master’s research was focused on the fisher reintroductions in the Cascades. Before joining Conservation Northwest, Tanner conducted wildlife research with a variety of species ranging from butterflies to snow leopards in North Cascades National Park Service Complex, Mount Rainier National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Montana, Mexico, and Kyrgyzstan. Tanner brings his background in wildlife conservation and community engagement to his work and is excited to be working with Conservation Northwest to protect, connect, and restore the wild places that make the Pacific Northwest such a unique and special region. Out of the office you can find him enjoying the great outdoors (hiking, biking, climbing, rafting, skiing) or getting his hands dirty on the potter’s wheel.
