Jimmy Gribbin, our Field Coordinator, started with Sky Island Alliance in September 2022 to recruit and organize volunteers for our conservation programs. He also helps handle field equipment and coordinate logistics/schedules with fellow staff, volunteers, and partners.
He first became involved with SIA earlier this year, volunteering with the Spring Seeker project. He majored in History at the University of Arizona and has previously worked for a nonprofit organization in Chicago called the All Stars Project, as well as at Shepp Ranch in Idaho’s Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness.
His hopes for the Sky Island region are that it continues to be a wild place on both sides of the border and that the border wall be removed. Also that we build a bright future for jaguars (a native species) and a more environmentally conscious population as Arizona continues to grow. His interests include hiking, very amateur photography, documentaries, and planning roadtrips.
