Marisa Lipsey, Class of 2006

I completed my Master’s in Conservation Biology at the University of Cape Town, then worked in Tanzania for a conservation/environmental education NGO, tracking large and small mammals, conducting bird surveys and more! Back in the U.S. I’ve been a wildlife biology intern in remote northeastern Montana, and continued my sage-grouse work tracking winter habitat in Colorado’s Yampa Valley for the Colorado Division of Wildlife. It’s been quite an adventure, and my thanks go out to Middlebury and all the exceptional faculty of the biology and environmental studies departments who helped to send me on my way!
