PhD, UC Berkeley (Environmental Science, Policy, and Management)

Having grown up in the San Francisco Bay Area, Morgan saw the impacts of development on the diverse wild spaces that make the region unique, and considers biodiversity conservation a lifelong vocation. As a Conservation Analyst at Pepperwood, Morgan uses data about wildlife, climate, and the environment to keep our landscapes connected and resilient. Her PhD research at UC Berkeley showed how human land use shapes where animals live, and has informed regional conservation plans that will help wildlife thrive.
