Tracey Moss is a Salish Sea native who is both a biologist and a historian. The senior interpreter for Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, she divides her time between Vancouver Island's west coast and its east coast, where she makes her home, on Protection Island.
Tracey grew up "gunkholing" around the Gulf Islands on her family's small boat and later studied biology and history at university. She has worked as a parks interpreter for over a decade, where she has translated the wonders of the coastal temperate rainforest and its fascinating intertidal life for both adult and young audiences. She is involved with the annual Pacific Rim Whale Festival near Long Beach, B.C. and, in her spare time, is a volunteer firefighter.
Tracey's energy, enthusiasm and long ties to this coast and its human stories give great depth to her interpretation of the natural world and all its forms of life.
