Our next MCM’18 profile is on Meghan MacGregor, “I grew up in a small California beach town, where my time spent outdoors and in the ocean inspired a fascination with wildlife and environmental conservation. I went on to pursue a BS in Marine Biology at the University of California, Santa Cruz with an emphasis on marine mammal behavior. As an undergraduate I interned for the Marine Mammal Physiology Project at Long Marine Lab where I worked directly with rehabilitated bottlenose dolphins, sea otters, and Hawaiian monk seals to aid in imperative conservation research. After graduating university, I traveled to Central America to work with various wildlife sanctuaries. I have assisted in the rehabilitation of wildlife such as sea lions, harbor seals, manatees, neotropical river otters, wildcats, and howler monkeys. I take a special interest in sustainable living and how our choices impact environmental health. For the past 3 years I have worked as a dive master on Catalina Island, CA and prefer the underwater world to life on land. I hope to utilize the expertise I gain through the MCM program to support the preservation of wildlife populations by founding a wildlife sanctuary and eco-lodge.”
