Songs and Scat in Nova Scotia
Jessica from Arizona had been a volunteer at a local zoo and was planning on majoring in a scientific field in college. She found details of the Earthwatch Student Fellowship program and asked a teacher to nominate her. Jessica was selected and joined our Mammals of Nova Scotia project in 2010, where she worked with her team among forests, meadows, and beaches, studying how small mammalian prey species are affected by disrupted seasonal weather patterns. The experience helped her to define her planned career.
