JOANA PICOTO CORREIA
Student, University of Manitoba
Joana developed an early interest in nature, culture and interdisciplinary studies. She was born in Canada, grew up in Portugal and spent her teenage years and first years of college in Ireland. Having lived in three different countries, she had many opportunities to explore different natural habitats and to understand distinct cultural backgrounds. Now finishing her graduate program on the governance of the octopus fishery in southeastern Portugal, as part of an international research network called Too Big Too Ignore (http://toobigtoignore.net/), she aims to discover new inventive ways to improve our natural resource use, and environmental education.
