Meet #ScienceWoman Deb Rocque!
Our #ScienceWoman campaign kicked off during Women’s History Month, and we’re going to keep on rolling! 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 more posts!
Meet #ScienceWoman Deb Rocque, our deputy regional director for the Northeast Region.
Deb studied ornithology at the University of Connecticut and the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Her female conservation hero is Brina Kessel, the first female professor at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
Q. How did you get interested in conservation? A. I spent summers with my great-grandmother. We were always outside and she was always teaching me about critters and encouraging me to muck around in tidal pools.
Q. If you could have one incredible animal adaptation, what would it be? A. Flight! How cool would it be to never be stuck and traffic again?
