Keri Parker is a Senior Wildlife Biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (USFWS) International Affairs Program, where she provides scientific and management guidance in the conservation of species, populations, and habitats affected by international trade.
"One of the cool things about Wilson is that they teach you how to volunteer. The volunteer ethic becomes part of who you are, and you learn how to approach organizations for opportunities. Volunteering is one of the best ways to build experience and connections within the professional community.”
In 2007, Keri co-founded Save Pangolins to raise global awareness of pangolins and the people fighting to save them from extinction. They provide coordination between stakeholders and support to range state conservation programs. She holds an M.S. in Sustainable Development and Conservation Biology from the University of Maryland and lives in the Washington D.C. area with her husband Paul, dog Kodama, and cat Juniper.
