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 in the 1990s, Wendy has remained in Boulder since. Previously, she has worked as a freelance journalist, copywriter, editor, and college professor and researcher specializing in environmental communication. Before getting her master’s in journalism and PhD in media studies at the University of Colorado, 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 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 rainforest. Incorrigibly peripatetic, Wendy has been to more than 50 countries and all 50 states. In addition to blogging for Nat Hab's Good Nature, she also writes an eco-travel blog for Gaiam and is published regularly in the travel blogs of Huffington Post and Budget Travel. Wendy lives in Boulder with her husband, two teenagers, a giant Alaskan malamute and a cat.
