The Wolf Education & Research Center
Meet Chris Anderson
Chris Anderson is a devout Pacific Northwest wildlife enthusiast with a passion for others connecting with nature. Chris began his journey in science in 9th grade when studying in Mrs. Cappovilla’s biology class. Biology and ecology run deep in his blood as he works to develop the programs and outreaches of the Wolf Education and Research Center while also running a science education company called Owl Brand Discovery Kits.
Chris started his science education company in 1996, his company procuring, sterilizing, and retailing barn owl pellets that are used in public schools around the world, including at Passport to Wildlife outreaches! His company was named a National Geographic Canada Best Resource for Science Teachers in 2005, the same year he became President of the Wolf Education & Research Center.
Chris’ background in project development and public relations was a good fit for an organization that was on the same mortality schedule as the wolves they cared for. Since 2005, Chris introduced a popular magazine called the Sawtooth Legacy Journal, created two films called The Great Wolf Divide and The Great Predator Debate, and countless videos that promote a greater understanding of wildlife and caring for it. You can watch those films at the Media tab — after you have watched the Kidwings Explores Barn Owls and Wolves.
