Coastal Ecologist US Geological Survey, Baton Rouge
American, living in Louisiana, USA
Rachel is a coastal wetlands field ecologist studying the effectiveness of individual coastal wetland restoration projects while also monitoring the ecological condition of wetlands across the entire coastal Louisiana landscape. She studied wildlife ecology at Louisiana State University, fell in love with birds (specifically wetland birds), and dove into the wetland world from there. Wetlands are universal worldwide and Rachel is dedicated to their conservation and restoration. When not in the field, Rachel can be found training for triathlons and ultra marathons, or with her dog hiking, reading and generally going on adventures!
