It is with great pleasure to introduce a new member to our Primatology.net blogging family, my good friend Allison Hanes. We both attended UCSC for our undergraduate degrees and became friends while taking some prerequisite courses. Allison got her Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies/Biology. She’s enrolled as an MSc student in the Primate Conservation program at Oxford Brookes University.
She has worked over five years as a veterinary technician, has had research experience with the Shusterman Pinniped Group at UCSC Long Marine Laboratory, and has an extensive wildlife-related volunteering record. Her interests include veterinary medicine, ecotourism, community-based conservation, sustainable development, and conservation medicine.
She’ll be publishing a post here in the near future, so make sure to keep an eye out. Again, she’s been my friend for over 10 years and I’m very enthusiastic about having Allison on board. I believe she’ll offer a great mix of topics and look forward to reading her posts.
