Meet #ScienceWoman Amy Roe!
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 Amy Roe, a biologist in our New York Field Office in Cortland. She earned her masters and doctoral degrees in environmental toxicology at Clemson University.
Q. How did you get interested in conservation? A. My concern for wildlife and the harm that contaminants can cause the environment guided me towards environmental conservation. I wanted to be a part of a team of scientists to make a positive difference for wildlife and their habitat.
Q. What’s your favorite thing about working for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service? A. My top priority for wanting to work for the Service as a scientist is job stability. My favorite thing about actually working for the Service is knowing that I am contributing to habitat improvement, with on the ground habitat restoration projects, for fish and wildlife.
Q. If you could have one incredible animal adaptation, what would it be? A. My physical adaptation would be flying. I would love to be able to see the world as “habitat” just as our migratory trust resources view the world while in flight.
