2nd Season – According to her parents, since the day Alex could talk, she has had a passion for nonhuman animals, with a particular interest in marine mammals and anything else that calls the ocean home. She was born and raised in New York State and just graduated from Canisius College in Buffalo. There, she majored in both Animal Behavior, Ecology, & Conservation and in Biology, with a minor in Anthrozoology. In her time there, she was heavily involved in a beluga whale research team, as well as Canisius Ambassadors for Conservation, a group dedicated to educating the public in order to instill a love of nature and respect for wildlife.

 

She has also been lucky enough to partake in a number of ecology- and wildlife-focused educational travel opportunities including a trip to San Juan Island in 2014 and she’s been waiting to come back ever since. In her free time, Alex enjoys playing with dogs, and birding, and can’t get enough of the water. Most of all, she can’t wait to get out on the boat and inspire the public to love wildlife as much as she does.
