Jamie Kish Joins Cape Perpetua Collaborative Team as Program Associate!

If you’ve been on our Tidepool Tours the last two years, or been exploring in the local intertidal zones during low tide, you probably have met Jamie, our Tidepool Ambassador Coordinator and Guide.

Get ready to see more of her and her happy colored socks, as she is now also taking on the role of the Cape Perpetua Marine Reserves Program Associate!

Jamie is a local of the Yachats area, previously bouncing around the country and Bahamas doing an array of animal husbandry work and marine education for places such as the Walt Disney Co and the New York Aquarium. Jamie brings 25+ years of experience working in the marine biology and animal husbandry fields, since starting at the Oregon Coast Aquarium as a youth volunteer at the age of 11.

Look for her leading tidepool tours in the Summer, mushroom bioblitzes in the Fall, and now year round, organizing beach clean ups, sea star monitoring sessions, marine debris monitoring, as well as working with our stellar volunteers, all with the hope to further people’s passion and care for Cape Perpetua and surrounding environments.

In their free time, you can often find Jamie with a camera, waist deep in the ocean, working on her macro marine life photography, heart to earth on the forest floor talking to mushrooms, painting, or gardening, with the love of her life, her pug, B.

Jamie can currently be reached at cptapcoordinator@gmail.com. She is looking forward to hearing from you!
