This is the blog of Juliana Masseloux – avid traveler, adventurer, and conservationist.
I am currently an undergraduate student at Oregon State University studying Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences, or more specifically, wildlife conservation. While my preliminary years out of university will be focused on gaining work experience and eventually continuing with my studies to get a Masters and PhD, my goal is to work internationally in resolving human-wildlife conflict in rural areas of developing countries where socioeconomic disparity places local people in direct conflict with wildlife, particularly endangered predators.
I have currently studied abroad/interned/conducted research in Chile, Thailand, and Kenya.
This blog will be dedicated to following some of my research, and potentially offer travel and research tips.
Other hobbies include bird-watching, hiking, boxing, rock climbing/bouldering, reading, writing, and smothering cats with love.
