Professional Interests:

Elizabeth's professional interests encompass a wide gamut of ecological topics including raptor conservation, wildlife management, environmental education and bioinfomatics. Most of her career has been spent wrestling small mammals; from goats as an animal keeper with the Louisville Zoo, chipmunks as a field technician in the New York Adirondacks, and even elementary school students as an environmental educator at Mount St. Helens NVM. Her present position with the Hawaiian Ecosystems at Risk project allows her to pursue an on-going passion, disseminating pertinent biological information to the public.
