Emma Ferdig



Emma is a proud Colorado native. Growing up at the foot of the Rocky Mountains instilled a passion for wildlife and the natural world. This led her to pursue her Bachelor’s degree at Colorado State University for Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology. Soon after graduation, she worked for Colorado Parks and Wildlife researching waterfowl in Walden, CO. Her love of sharing her passion for wildlife with the public eventually led her to return to CSU to pursue a Master’s in Education. Since Emma first joined the jaguar team, she has encouraged students to observe and study their natural world in order to have a greater appreciation for what the earth offers us.
