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.
