Brigham Young University
Ethan Ostraff is a recent graduate of Brigham Young University with a Bachelor's Degree in Wildlife and Wildlands Conservation. He has worked for the past two years in a research lab dedicated to overcoming barriers specific to seeding and restoring degraded and disturbed lands. He hopes to use the knowledge he’s gained over the last few years to continue his education and work towards graduate degrees and eventually teach or do full-time research. He would love to combine his current experience of habitat restoration with the diverse knowledge offered by indigenous communities around the world. Ethan’s long term goal is to become a biocultural conservationist that works hand-in-hand with traditional ecological knowledge sources to make modern restoration efforts more impactful.
