BLACK STEVE IRWIN

Eeland Stribling works for the Colorado Parks and Wildlife as a Wildlife Nuisance technician. His job allows him to get really close to all types of animals from the wild.

His name means largest African Antelope. One of his early experiences with animals nature was with his grandfather, who was the head of the Colorado Division of Wildlife. They would sit together and watch animal planet and Steve Irwin’s Crocodile Hunter.

While Eeland was at Colorado State University, he began tying flies and fishing and quickly found himself in New Zealand, fly-fishing. He helped to create the CSU fly-fishing club and loves working on conservation projects with @pigfarmink, @brownfolksfishing.

But not only is Eeland a great outdoors man he’s also a great stand-up comic. He has performed in Wyoming and all over Colorado. He believes in connecting with people, whether that means teaching kids to fish, or taking friends to his favorite Colorado valley (he’ll never tell), or laughing with strangers about human experiences. He’ll talk nature, music, philosophy and whatever else you care about.
