Why are you interested in ecology and conservation science?
Having lived in Samoa for 18 months, I saw the way that families were affected by the rising sea levels and dangers of the storm. My main interest is working within Samoa to learn of their adaptation strategies, the impact that climate change has on different people, and to bring educational materials and opportunities to the people.
