Hi, I am Bailey Arnold. I just graduated from Minden High School in Minden, Nebraska, United States this year. In the future, I want to be able to work in foreign countries to make a meaningful difference in animal conservation as a conservation geneticist. I am going to start my studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in biochemistry this year as an honors student.
I have volunteered at the Lincoln Children’s Zoo as a Zoo Crew member for five years. I have also volunteered at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium for four years as a Zoo Crew member. I started by just liking animals and wanting to learn more, but I have been able to get to know the conservation stories of these animals and I am passionate to share with people their stories and how they can change the world. I love being able to start that spark in young kids when they are able to know and connect with an animal. I want to share my passion with others in hopes to share their conservation stories and change the world one person at a time.
I love to be outdoors and spend time with animals. I am excited to be a part of the Madagascar Biodiversity Partnership and to learn more about the conservation of endangered species.
