Welcome to the Fancy Scientist!

Join me in learning about our incredible natural world! I am a wildlife biologist and my mission is to tell you about the amazing animals on our planet and help you adopt an Earth-friendly lifestyle while breaking stereotypes about women in science. In other words, I collect elephant poop and wear high heels.
