Marine Protection Atlas Intern
Despite growing up in central Canada - as far from the ocean as possible - Jericha cultivated a deep love for the marine world. She graduated from Wesleyan University in Connecticut with a double major in Biology and French Studies. Inspired by a semester abroad in Madagascar, Jericha explored the intersection of colonialism and Malagasy marine conservation in her undergraduate thesis. She has worked as a scientific research assistant with the Costa Rican Alliance for Sea Turtle Conservation & Science, and as a volunteer with N.O.A.A. for the protection of Hawaiian monk seals; she also has a background in legal research and nonprofit administration. Jericha is particularly interested in promoting and supporting Indigenous conservation methods and organizations. In her free time, Jericha loves diving, hiking, and doing puzzles.
