I've always been fascinated by reptiles and amphibians, as there is always more to them than what meets the eye. I'm particularly passionate about conservation, more specifically, the issue on rattlesnake roundups.
Since April 2018, I have been documenting sightings of local herps. The pages for the American Toad and Garter Snake are pictured. These sightings are occasionally uploaded to apps such as iNaturalist.
Starting June 2018, I got involved with Blanding's Turtle conservation. I worked with Grassroots Wildlife Conservation to raise and release the turtles during 10th grade Biology.
In April 2019, I was invited by an elementary school in Holliston, MA, to talk about my experiences with Blanding's turtles conservation with 1st and 2nd grade students.
