Science Women Building a Stronger Atlantic Coast

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Northeast Region

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s #ScienceWoman series is highlighting some of the amazing women who are working to strengthen natural defenses along the Atlantic Coast as part of the federal Hurricane Sandy recovery program. With their help, communities and wildlife are being protected against future storms, sea-level rise and other impacts predicted with a changing climate. Three of these women — Martha Naley, Katie Conrad, and Kate O’Brien — already have been profiled in the #ScienceWoman series, and four more will be featured this week, so stay tuned!

Julie Devers is a Fishery Biologist stationed at the Maryland Fishery Resources Office in Annapolis, Maryland. Her Hurricane Sandy funded work focuses on the removal of Bloede Dam and Centreville Dams in Catonsville and Centreville, Maryland, which will help reduce flooding from future storms and increase fish passage. Her favorite part about working with the service is “meeting new Service employees and partners who are making a difference in the conservation of coastal and freshwater species through new and innovative approaches”. For more on Julie, look for her profile this coming week in the #ScienceWoman series!
