Sarah Knox

Knox works for Colorado State University’s Center for Environmental Management of Military Lands, but you won’t find her in the Rockies. Her home base is the U.S. Army’s 130,000-acre Pohakuloa Training Area on the island of Hawaii, where she works as a wildlife coordinator. Her role is to survey and monitor protected species that live on the remote area, such as the Hawaiian hoary bat and the dark-rumped petrel. Recently Knox planned and initiated a fencing project to keep out feral mammals that eat native plants and prevent native habitat from regenerating.
