Hello, my name is Liz, and I adore hiking, camping, and generally spending time in nature, and I can sit for hours observing animals. I’ve always held a strong fascination towards the environment and our own human interactions within it, and ever since I was a little girl I have wanted to work for the conservation of animals. When I was around twelve years old I determined, after devouring every piece of information pertaining to any sort of animal, that I would like to become a research zoologist. I can think of nothing better than studying clouded leopards in the wilds of Nepal, or Bengal tigers in the dry back-country of India, or any of the amazing creatures that populate this earth. Along with this interest in the wild, I am also interested in genetics and culture, and how both affect wildlife and the world around us. Since this program explores every aspect of zoology, I am excited to participate and learn more about zoology, as well as discover more about the diverse wildlife present in this world.
I am on the Real World team and will be writing on how, for instance, gorilla conservation relates to the “ordinary” world.
