Samantha Lyon

North American Class Coordinator

My interest in pursuing a career in conservation gained traction while participating in wildlife caretaking internships starting as an undergraduate.  Currently, I possess degrees in Zoology and Environmental Studies.  I have held an array of positions in the environmental realm within non-profits and various levels of government.  My time with IWRC began in the spring of 2022.  Additionally, I have volunteered and interned with organizations and institutions working on projects involving camera trap investigations of felids and conducting morphological analyses.  While I am from New England originally, I now reside in Europe where I am enrolled in a Master program in Evolutionary Biology.
