To celebrate International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month the Museum is sharing the stories of 27 inspirational women, alongside the animals they work with the most.
“I’m a first-year Geography PhD student studying histories and narratives of grey whales along the North American Pacific Coast. I’m fascinated by the varieties of relationships between people and grey whales, the stories told about these relationships, and why these stories might matter for broader issues of wildlife conservation, justice, and sustainability.
In addition, I’m passionate about making my area of research more accessible. I use mobility aids (including trekking poles for walking on sand, pictured here), and I’m thinking about how to make geographic fieldwork more accessible for all potential researchers.”
You can hear Anna Guasco talk about grey whale narratives, including the dreaded Devil-Fish, on our YouTube channel in Celebrating Women in Science and Conservation. Skip to 101.29 minutes for Anna’s talk.
