About Our Speaker, Caren Loebel-Fried
Caren has always been obsessed with birds. In the rainforest of Hawai`i, she is lucky to live among many native Hawaiian birds. Lately, seabirds are taking her on journeys to the great blue unknown… Caren finds that birds make excellent conservation ambassadors, intriguing and entertaining to most humans, their presence, or lack of presence, revealing the health of the environment.
During seven weeks on Midway Atoll, Caren counted and studied nesting albatrosses and other wildlife. She was researching to create iconic art for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service that celebrated Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge, Battle of Midway Memorial, and Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument. Some of Caren’s other projects include creating iconic art for Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge on Kaua’i, where seabirds abound. Caren also partnered with Conservation Council for Hawai`i on a Hawaiian Monk Seal educational project, and a project that teaches about extinction in Hawai`i.
Caren currently resides in Half Moon Bay, California and Volcano, Hawai`i. and has been providing us with a lot of educational resources that we used to educate adults and kids about the albatross. She is also an incredible book illustrator and you can learn more about her work on her website.
