Current Listening Lab Members
I am a second year from Golden, Colorado majoring in Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Biology with a concentration in Conservation Biology. I have always enjoyed being outdoors and as I got older I started noticing how people affect the environment. I am inspired by people like Jane Goodall and organizations like Greenpeace to put my efforts and time into saving the Earth and the animals that live here with us. I am excited to be working in the Listening Lab, learning new ways to educate people on conservation efforts, and to learn how many different conservation careers there are in my field.
I am a second year biology major from Summit County Colorado. Growing up in the mountains allowed me to develop a keen interest in the natural world, which only increased as I traveled to and camped in national parks across the western United States. I hope to focus on ecology in my future career and am specifically interested in the wide-scale ecological impacts of not only humans, but also species-species interactions. Working with the listening lab is a fantastic opportunity for me view these interactions in a real-world scenario. In my free time you will often find me reading a fantasy book or hiking.
I am a third-year student from Kansas City, MO studying zoology at CSU. I haven't had too many opportunities to experience nature first-hand, but I've always loved what it has to offer. Specifically, I am fascinated by birds, though I'm always open to finding new interests and learning more! I think it is important for humans and natural environments to be able to coexist, and I hope to learn more about how to make this happen while also conserving soundscapes and wildlife.
I am a second-year student from Chicago, IL studying Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology with a concentration in wildlife. Growing up in the suburbs didn’t provide much opportunity for outdoor exploration but thanks to my father's passion for the outdoors I found out from a young age that natural sciences were my passion. The human influence on ecological systems is a growing interest of mine ever since which is what lead me to the listening lab. I hope to eventually end up conducting my own research looking at the effects human recreation has on ecosystems in federally protected land.
