Auriane Benabou

Auriane Benabou

Brown University

  • Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

Auriane is interested in conservation of island ecosystems and impacts of invasive species as well indigenous activist groups fighting to protect native lands from environmental threats. She hopes to be able to mesh the complex science that goes into ecology and conservation with public policy and community outreach to break the stigma surrounding STEM fields and scientists and create a more inclusive atmosphere that increases public involvement in the preservation of their environment.

Support the Conservation Scholars Program

The Conservation Scholars Fund directly supports students who are pursuing a career in conservation through the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington. Effective conservation strategies are inclusive, involving a diversity of stakeholders and incorporating multiple values. Yet, the conservation community does not reflect the collective voice of our country. Without a significant, serious and immediate increase in diversity and inclusion, the conservation community will become a movement of the past instead of a guiding principle of the future. Our program aims to change that.
