Stakeholder ratings and roles for the organization Sea Otter Savvy, responsible for educating Monterey aquatic tourist companies and locals/tourists using aquatic craft regarding avoiding disturbing sea otters.
I am a recent graduate from Edinburgh Napier University, earning my MSc with Distinction in Wildlife Biology and Conservation - my thesis focussed on native and freshwater shrimp and is currently being edited for publishing. I am from the San Francisco Bay Area and studied Marine Biology at the University of California San Diego where my love for the ocean and environmental conservation was cemented. In between degrees I spent time in Monterey, California volunteering, interning, and working for the Monterey Bay Aquarium Sea Otter Program, two labs at Hopkins Marine Station, and as a whale watching naturalist. I am deeply passionate about science communication and education and am excited to see how my career develops!
We are an international community of conservation professionals. We provide a space to exchange ideas, create new solutions, and make new partnerships to enable better, faster, and cheaper conservation that helps save more wildlife. We are a non-hierarchical friendly community of like-minded people, with similar values and different ideas. Our community is free to join and mainly for those currently working in the conservation sector, but it is open to anyone who feels that they can contribute in a meaningful way. Our community is member-led, meaning that members decide what to talk about, how to interact, and how to grow the community.
