Howard University

  • Marine Biology

Paloma is an active conservationist in many forms. Growing up on a farm, she has always known the value of sustainability through food, and economic resources. Now, she is looking to learn more about oceanography and ocean pollution, to use her knowledge to better help both her community around her and communities around the world.

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.
