From the blog
Welcome to my blog!
I’m so excited that you’ve stumbled across my website! I’m Larissa – an ecologist, science communicator, and outdoor enthusiast. I study the potential impacts of climate change on vulnerable species’ habitats and I’m passionate about talking to people about science and the environment. I hope to use this blog for two things: 1) to increase awareness about environmental issues, with an emphasis on the impacts of climate change; and 2) to share photos and stories of my outdoor adventures.
To cultivate environmental empathy (the desire to care for our natural environment), we need to understand and experience our natural world. This isn’t always possible for everyone, though. Our responsibilities or disabilities can keep us from being able to get outside. So, I hope you can learn about and experience Mother Nature vicariously through this blog.
As one of my idols says “To reconnect with nature is key if we want to save the planet.” – Dr. Jane Goodall
