SCB North America is proud to introduce your new board members!

We are so excited to have them on board to help us make our community an even better place for everyone interested in conservation biology.

Thoughtfully designed by Sage Paul, a Coast Salish Artist, a beautiful narrative behind the inspiration of our logo has been created to take you on a journey – From Summit to Sea.

Learn a bit more about Bernie:

Bernie’s background includes research in developmental ecology and amphibian conservation and positions in non-profit leadership, community outreach, and science education. Before joining SCBNA, Bernie served as the Director of Science Outreach at Edgewood College in Madison, WI, where he led the development and implementation of community-based science education programs for underrepresented communities across the state. He is also a current Board Member of the Urban Learning Collaborative, a Milwaukee-based non-profit aimed at training the next generation of K-12 educators. Bernie is passionate about connecting scientists with community leaders, grassroots organizations, and students of all ages through his role at SCBNA, all in an effort to protect our natural world. Bernie received a B.S. in Biology from Trinity University in San Antonio, TX, and an M.S. in Biology from Washington State University. He lives and works in Milwaukee, WI, with his wife, Alexandra, and their cat, Zuri.
