Sour dough bread starter

My daughter recently moved to Vancouver, BC and wants me to bring the sour dough bread starter when I visit in 2 weeks.  Any idea how to transport the starter????  We will be flying from Memphis.  Or is there any way to ship it??

Like so.

And it gives you emergency back up, too. A little bag of it in your luggage, clearly marked "Sourdough Starter flakes" will get over fine.

Happy baking,
