My name is Hunter Doughty and I am a conservation biologist.
As a young scientist passionate about making a major impact in conservation, I have studied, observed, and worked with animals all over the globe. Through my many endeavors I have gained experience in a range of conservation-related positions, from wildlife sanctuaries, to environmental law, elephant cognition, and large-scale meta-analyses.
I am currently gearing up to take the largest jump of my career: a doctoral candidacy at the University of Oxford, studying human use of wildlife products in southeast Asia!
Aside from my personal research, I am the social media manager for Think Elephants International, a US based non-profit that performs elephant cognition work, as well as pre-college education programs that teach science and conservation.
Lastly, I have also recently written my first children’s book(!) that I hope will encourage young girls to enter into the sciences. I am so excited to say that Abigail Ann in the Bike Path Predicament will be released in this fall!
This webpage is an accumulation of the many wonderful things that make up my path in conservation biology, as well as my unending pursuit in understanding the life of the wild!
