Meet #ScienceWoman Georgia Basso
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 Georgia Basso, a Wildlife Biologist at the USFWS Coastal Program in Charleston, Rhode Island. She studied Entomology and Applied Ecology at the University of Delaware for her undergrad, and landscale scale conservation at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies for her graduate work.
Q. What’s your favorite thing about working for FWS? A. My colleagues in Region 5. I feel lucky to work with so many smart, dedicated, passionate people. They are an inspiration.
Q. If you could have one incredible animal adaptation, what would it be? A. The speed and maneuverability of a Northern goshawk. I worked with goshawks in Nevada early in my career and was so impressed by their aerial skills. Being able to weave through a dense forest with the speed, skill and grace of a goshawk would bring a new dimension to trail running, mountain biking and skiing!
