Why Environmental Studies?
I’ve always wanted to study the ocean, more from the biology standpoint, but as I became more aware of what was happening to the planet I decided that I wanted to focus more on conservation and ecology. This is why I chose FES, because of the broad spectrum of learning you get about the environment in so many areas and the idea of being set up powerfully in the world of activism really intrigued me in a way other programs did not. It was either science, or something else, and I wanted a program that had both.
I want to focus on ocean conservation, specifically poaching (shark finning, dolphin drive, whale hunting, etc.), by-catch and plastic pollution.
