Chris N. Parish

   Biography

Chris N. Parish was raised in Buttonwillow, California near the historical range of the remnant California condor population in the southern San Joaquin Valley. After a brief introduction to the wildlife of the desert foothills, he moved on to school at Northern Arizona University obtaining a B.S. in Biology with emphasis on Fish and Wildlife Management. After working on the Black Footed Ferret Reintroduction Program for the Arizona Game and Fish Department, he transferred to the Flagstaff Regional Office as Condor Project Coordinator in 1997. Since fall 2000, he has been directing the condor projectís field effort for The Peregrine Fund.
Chris and his wife Ellen, have two beautiful daughters, Emma and Anna. They can often be found together exploring the wilds of the four corners region while tracking condors. Chris enjoys hunting, fishing, and photography when he can make time.
