We are a community of diverse, highly driven academics making a tangible difference for biodiversity across the globe. Our work supports diverse communities and aims to change the landscape of conservation science and its implementation.
Part of our lab's mission is to train the next generation of conservation leaders. As such, we work closely with students to support their personal goals in research, education, and professional development.
Our lab provides a uniquely supportive and inclusive environment for our students. As conservation scientists face current ecological crises, we provide a workplace that cultivates hope and inspires future leaders to become agents of change. The majority of our current graduate students are women, and we foster a supportive culture that recognizes the unique challenges faced by women in conservation. We also make considerable effort to uplift girls and women of color in our programs, and we promote culturally responsive learning.
