Austin Green is a Ph.D candidate from the Biodiversity and Conservation Ecology Lab at the University of Utah. He studies how human influence affects mammal distribution and behavior in an effort to apply this knowledge to on-the-ground wildlife conservation. Austin currently runs Wasatch Wildlife Watch, a community science project that leverages the power of the Salt Lake Community and remote sensing camera traps. Austin is passionate about teaching and interacting with people, and he firmly believes that the best way to protect the wild lands we all love is to approach it with the local community’s backing.
