Claire Dearing is the former Operations Manager at the now closed Jurassic World. She was in charge of the park during the 2015 Jurassic World Incident until Simon Masrani's death, after which the Masrani Global Board reassigned emergency operations to InGen Security.
Following the collapse of Jurassic World, she founded the Dinosaur Protection Group, an NPO activist group with the aim to establish and protect the rights of living dinosaurs. During the Isla Nublar Crisis she campaigned for the endangered animals on Isla Nublar to be rescued and relocated. After the Government ruled against this, she was approached by the Lockwood Foundation who were funding an Expedition to the island to relocate the animals to a private sanctuary.
The Jurassic World Incident
On the morning of the Jurassic World Incident, Dearing met with representatives of Verizon Wireless in the Hammond Creation Lab to discuss sponsorship of an attraction.
After being evacuated to the mainland, Claire waited with her nephews for Karen and Scott Mitchell, visibly shaken by her ordeal. After her sister and brother-in-law arrived, she tearfully apologised to Karen for putting her sons in danger whilst she embraced Gray. Karen then embraced Claire as well, asking if she was okay. Leaving the Mitchell family to reconcile, Dearing met with Owen Grady at the entrance of the Hangar. Asking what they should do now, he told her they should "stick together, for protection."

Isla Nublar Crisis
At some point prior to the Jurassic World Incident, Claire Dearing and Owen Grady went out on what proved to be a disastrous first date. Reminiscing sometime later, Grady blamed their incompatible on Claire's 'uptightness', citing her need for an Itinerary and unwillingness to drink Tequila. Dearing retaliated blaming Grady's lack of appropriate attire and laid back attitude. There was no second date.
At the behest of Simon Masrani, Dearing begrudgingly approached Grady to inspect the Indominus Rex Paddock for flaws prior to its opening. The reunion was sour, with both Dearing and Grady baiting each other with taunts.
