05 May Introducing Me – Ascensy Perez
Hi everyone, I’m Ascensy and I am really excited to be interning for EFTA at the Siuslaw National Forest! Here’s some more information about me: I recently graduated from the University of Oregon with a BS in Biology, a concentration in Ecology and Evolution, and a minor in Black Studies. I am very passionate about marine ecosystems and behavioral ecology, and am looking forward to working at Cape Perpetua – where the forest meets the sea!
In addition to my role as an intern ranger, I’ll also be participating in various restoration and conservation projects across different departments at the Forest Service. Throughout my internship, I hope to contribute to making science education accessible to all communities and emphasize the importance of conserving the forest’s biodiversity.
I look forward to sharing my journey with you all!
