Margalit Shetreat-Klein

Hunter College

  • Environmental Studies

Margalit is an environmental science major from NYC. She is passionate about forest ecology, plant biology, conservation, and making nature accessible to all people. She believes that consciously immersing ourselves in nature is essential to creating strong personal relationships with the environment and recognizing the inherent value of the natural world. She is also interested in how forests grow, change, and adapt through their complex homeostatic mechanisms. Margalit’s “happy place” is a moss-carpeted forest veiled with lacy ferns, where the light is stained a gentle leafy green as it seeps between lush foliage.

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.
