Hi again Instagram! Life has been a whirlwind lately. As always, I’m either working, at school, or studying. But I just want to share some exciting things coming up!
Next Spring, I’ll be going to school in Front Royal at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute! I’ll be working with world-renowned scientists and researchers, as well as endangered animals 🐆 this has been a dream of mine since I got into the field, and I can’t wait to help an entire species thrive on earth 🦊 •
The video on this posts shows a Maned Wolf; a endangered species quickly diminishing (less than 2,000) from its native habitat, South America, due to habitat destruction and hunting. Their name is very deceiving as they aren’t a wolf, but resemble more an oversized fox. And for a fun fact, they actually dig with their teeth instead of paws 👅
I hope to be posting a whole bunch more as I attend the school next year. I’m proud to be part of an amazing institution that helps sustain these endangered population through innovative reproductive techniques and amazing species reintroduction teams 💜
