Zoologist. Educator. Adorably cybernetic.
Dr. Wildlife, commonly referred to as “Doc”, is a zoologist who focuses on conservation through education by working in the zoo and aquarium field. A lifelong animal conservationist, Doc has helped with projects around the world from rehabilitating injured seabirds in South Africa to tracking tigers in central India. Her involvement in the zoological community has so far spanned 10 years and has included such positions as Keeper Aide at the Memphis Zoo to Migratory Bird Researcher at the Smithsonian. She is also the Executive Director of The Prusten Project, a 501(C)(3) non-profit which focuses on conserving wild tigers through the use of acoustic monitoring. When not conducting research or at work, Doc uses her fursuits to do creative forms of science communication through Twitter, YouTube, and even in person at scientific gatherings such as EarthX.
