Introducing our newest volunteer, Devin! 

 

My name is Devin, and I am a recent graduate from the University of Nebraska Omaha. I hold a degree in Environmental Studies with a minor in Chemistry. I plan to pursue my PhD in a field concerning conservation of endangered species next year. I am so excited to be going to Madagascar to help with the greater bamboo lemur research team! In college, I was a keeper intern at the Henry Doorly Zoo’s Madagascar exhibit and worked first-hand with a variety of amazing lemurs. I knew I wanted to go into research, so I then went on to an internship at the Center for Conservation and Research at the zoo. I am interested in both in-situ and ex-situ conservation, so I can’t wait to actually be out in the field collecting data! I look forward to having a career committed to protecting our planet and the diverse array of animals it holds. Next stop- Kianjavato!
