About The Event
About Ecological Associates Senior Scientist, Rachel King
Originally from South Carolina, I moved to Orlando, FL when I was a teenager and went to the University of Central Florida for my B.S. in Biology and obtained my M.S. in Ecology at the University of Georgia studying spatial ecology and overland movements of aquatic turtles. I then worked as a regional biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for over three years and learned how to conduct bird surveys for various species including white-crowned pigeons, Florida scrub-jays, crested caracaras, and wading birds. Finally, I became a senior scientist with Ecological Associates, Inc. and continue to work with bird species, particularly Florida scrub-jays and crested caracaras. I can't wait to share my experiences with the majestic crested caracara with Audubon of Martin County!
