Taylor Shook grew up on the Vernon River of Savannah, GA where she experienced the rich diversity of Georgia’s coastal wildlife. Her passion for animals grew when she began volunteering for the Caretta Research Project on Wassaw National Wildlife Refuge (a barrier island); a hands-on study that began in 1973 and investigating nesting behavior and population trends of loggerhead sea turtles.
Taylor got her Bachelor of Science degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology from Clemson University in 2015, completing a semester in Queensland, Australia at James Cook University. At a cattle ranch in Australia called Wambiana, Taylor was involved in the Wambiana Grazing Trial, and researched the effects that moderate versus heavy grazing had on species richness and diversity. Taylor began working for the Georgia-Alabama Land Trust, Inc. in June, 2016.
