Carina DeVera is an animal advocate, outdoor enthusiast, and writer. She has been a dedicated champion for animals since she was a child, when—to the chagrin of her parents—she began to rescue underweight hedgehogs and abandoned baby birds from local parks. In the years since, she has lived this passion both professionally and personally.
She currently resides in San Francisco with her husband, a small herd of rescued guinea pigs, and one particularly feisty parrotlet.
