Dr. Small joined Point Blue as an intern biologist in what was then the Terrestrial Program in 1995. Soon after, she led Point Blue’s first projects on the Sacramento River investigating bird response to riparian restoration. She completed her dissertation on the same subject at the University of Missouri and served as senior Conservation Scientist with the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) in Washington DC for two years. She currently runs her own company, Small-Lorenz Ecology, LLC, focusing on habitat conservation, research, science communications, climate change adaptation & resilience, and policy analysis. Her expertise and interests include response of wildlife to climate change and habitat restoration and conservation that includes the full life cycle of migratory birds. Learn more about Stacy here.
