Jenny Isaacs


Jenny is an intern for Mongabay while she pursues her PhD in Geography at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Jenny is excited to write for Mongabay as she is committed to raise awareness about the loss of biodiversity around the world. Jenny is interested in approaches to minimizing human/wildlife crime and conflict through the promotion of stewardship and sustainability. Her work in academia focuses on the human geography of conservation and wildlife management, specifically identifying drivers of and solutions for negative human impacts on the recovery of endangered species.

Jenny holds a Master of Sustainability Studies from Ramapo College of New Jersey, a Bachelor of Music and a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Jenny is a New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts certified High School English Teacher with classroom teaching experience in literature, theater arts, and writing at three urban high schools. She has worked as an Educator for the Wildlife Conservation Society's Central Park Zoo, The National Park Service (Thomas Edison National Historical Park), The New Jersey Audubon Society, and the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey. She is an enthusiastic birder who has worked as a biological field intern on bird banding studies for the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission and The New Jersey Audubon Society.

When Jenny is not reading about or working on issues of biodiversity loss, she enjoys traveling, watching and playing basketball, hanging out with her husband Brian, playing with her tiels and rabbits, going to concerts in New York City, writing and playing music, seeing family and friends, hiking, dancing, and volunteering on citizen science projects.

Jenny hopes that by raising awareness about the plight of wildlife and wild places around the world via Mongabay.com, readers will be moved, as she has, to take action and support the individuals and conservation organizations that are on the ground, standing up for nature. She believes that only through the promotion of stewardship (proactive engagement with and responsibility for the health of the natural world) is the goal of sustainability possible. She looks forward to helping Mongabay raise awareness on issues of critical importance in the field of conservation for many years to come.
