Meet #ScienceWoman Wendi Weber
Celebrate Women’s History Month with us! This year, we’re looking forward by honoring women across the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and female conservationists who are making history in our agency and in conservation. With each #ScienceWoman, we’ll share a photo and a couple questions and answers about her work. Stay tuned for posts throughout the month!
Meet Northeast Regional Director Wendi Weber. She studied zoology and fisheries at the universities of Rhode Island and Georgia, and her female conservation hero is Rachel Carson.
Q. What’s your favorite thing about working for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service?A. I LOVE working with dedicated people that are passionate about conservation and share in my pride of our agency’s mission.
Q. What’s your favorite species and why?A. I love sea turtles and sturgeon. Both are pre-historic creatures whose beauty and ability to survive and adapt throughout the years amazes me. They grabbed my heart and are the reason I decided to become a biologist.
