Wendy Redal

Wendy’s passions are travel, nature and communication, which intersect in her position as Nat Hab's chief writer and editor. A Northwest native who got hooked on the Colorado sunshine when she came out from Seattle for grad school, Wendy now calls Boulder home. She has worked as a freelance journalist, copywriter and editor, and was previously a college professor and researcher with the Center for Environmental Journalism at the University of Colorado Boulder. Before getting her master’s in journalism and PhD in media studies at CU, Wendy was a tour director in Alaska, Canada, the western U.S. and New England. She also worked in operations management and sales in the Alaska and Canadian Rockies tourism industry.

Wendy enjoys arranging custom trips for private groups that she often accompanies, a pursuit that has taken her trekking in the High Caucasus of Georgia, into the Bolivian Amazon by dugout canoe, through the jungles of Nepal on elephant back, overland in Botswana by 4x4 Land Cruiser, and across 115 miles of Mongolian steppe on a horse, sipping fermented mare’s milk with nomad families on the way. Among Wendy’s magical wildlife encounters are snorkeling with sea lions in the Galapagos, getting sprayed by a humpback whale in Antarctica, and sitting face to face with a silverback gorilla in the Congo rain forest. Incorrigibly peripatetic, Wendy has been to 55 countries and all 50 states. In addition to blogging for Nat Hab & WWF's Good Nature Travel, she has been a regular eco-travel blogger for Gaiam and is published in the travel blogs of Huffington Post and Budget Travel. 

Wendy and her husband have a son in college, a daughter in high school, a giant Alaskan malamute and a 17-year-old cat. When she's not working, you will find Wendy skiing and hiking in the mountains, road-tripping around the West, frequenting farmers markets and artisan food shops for cooking inspiration, following current affairs, and singing in various community choral ensembles.
