My name is Emilie and I am a first year Ecology and Evolutionary Biology major. In high school, I was part of a club called EcoBuds, which collected recyclables from classrooms to recycle. Here at UCI, I am part of the Red Cross Club and TAO. I hope to contribute my enthusiasm for sustainability, my passion for the conservation of wildlife and their habitat, and my love for the natural world to the CRP team this year. Through the studies and travels with the team, I hope to gain knowledge and experience about sustainability problems and solutions. During the trip itself, I look forward to learning about the natural world and sustainability practices.
