Through an intersection of conservation biology (research) and science education (application), Dr. Weber bridges students’ scientific understanding to local issues in their community and natural environment (on a personal, local, and global scale). As the world becomes more culturally and biologically interconnected, people are becoming less connected to their natural surroundings. Dr. Weber looks for ways of connecting conservation to students’ local community, through authentic experiences focused on social and environmental issues, to support students in developing a better understanding of common scientific misconceptions and the interplay of social and environment firstname.lastname@example.org
