Melissa believes that to conserve fragile ecosystems, we must understand the ecology and connectivity of individual species. Her projects examine pieces of the puzzle, such as genetic connectivity, habitat use, and species interactions.
The decisions we make today in conservation will have long-reaching effects, and must be made based on best practices and solid research. She goes to work each day excited to be part of a community of people working to conserve endangered species for the health of our planet and the enjoyment of future generations.
