2015 grad hoping to connect with alums in wildlife conservation, advocacy, outreach or research

I have worked extensively with animals and always had a passion for the environment. I want to combine the two and go into wildlife conservation. I’m seeking advice from anyone who works in conservation advocacy, outreach or research. I’d love to know what you do and what experiences have led you to your career. Thank you in advance!

Archived Ad: Future Veterinarian Seeks Advice

My name is Ariana Boltax, and I am very interested in science education at the University level. After Brandeis, I will be attending veterinary school at Cornell University. My goal is to obtain a DVM followed by a PhD and to integrate the health sciences through education. Veterinary science is a fascinating combination of disciplines in a medically relevant fashion, and I am excited by the contributions that veterinary science has to offer to other health sciences, particularly human medicine.
