Lindsay Martinez

Class of 2019

I am from Great Falls, Montana and grew up exploring nearby Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks with my family, inspiring a love of the outdoors and wildlife. I graduated from Princeton University in June 2019 with a degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and minors in Environmental Studies and African Studies. For my undergraduate thesis at Princeton, I completed field work and lab work in Kenya to study parasitic infection in plains zebras and endangered Grevy’s zebras. I was a member of the Princeton University Conservation Society and traveled with the group to Puerto Rico in May 2019 to study the impacts of climate change on local ecology and communities. My main interest is wildlife conservation. I am looking forward to working with the National Park Service at Dinosaur National Monument, where I will use my field research skills to contribute to monarch butterfly research that can inform decision making concerning listing under the Endangered Species Act. I am also interested in creative communications methods and writing and am excited to work on science communications at Dinosaur.
