Cate / Thomson

In my spare time I volunteer as a citizen scientist for the local nature center, monitoring the local nesting songbird population and Cornell’s Bird Watch program. My biggest goal in life is to have an impact on endangered species conservation, which would allow a species to become no longer threatened. My biggest success in this pursuit is my favorite fun fact about me; I’ve named a species after my 14yo iguana, Feiruz (fay-rooz)! You can read more about it here and on Wikipedia.
