    Christopher

    Ecologist with a BS in Environmental Biology from SUNY College of Environmental Science & Forestry

    Christopher is a recent graduate from SUNY College of Environmental Science & Forestry and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Biology. His curiosity in the sciences has driven him to learn as much as he can about the natural history of the world and has gotten him to visit very remote, yet beautiful places in the Americas. He spent two months in the jungles of Costa Rica where he learned about its ecosystems and conducted a research study to further his knowledge about the effects of climate change in the region. He continued on his work in the pacific northwest where he was part of the butterfly project, monitoring the butterfly populations and plant diversity in the North Cascades National Park, WA. Now being back in New York City, he realized that the majority of the people around him did not have a good understanding of nature and the huge impacts humans are having on this Earth. He decided to help bring a change to that and spread as much knowledge as he can about the natural world to those around him, and why not start with those who will represent the future. he is excited to enlighten the youth about the wonderful life this planet inhabits and bring out the naturalist in them.
