Meet Our First Class of Conservation Technicians

by Richard Gibbons

Mark Herse and Loren Gallo

Our first class of seasonal Conservation Technicians—Loren Gallo and Mark Herse—has been busy working in the sanctuaries and readying the new field station for guides, volunteers, staff, and researchers. Loren and Mark will be with us for several months, lending their skill sets to our mission and gaining some new experience to propel them onward in their conservation careers.

Mark, who graduated from Montana State University with a BS in Biology, has experience on the Gulf coast working with radio telemetry and managing birds and habitat. His thoroughness and curiosity have distinguished him as a valued team member.

Loren, who graduated from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi (Islanders, not Aggies) with a BS in biology, is a problem solver, loves shorebirds, and approaches her work with alacrity. These qualities already have earned her praise from Winnie Burkett, who called Loren a good worker, high praise from Winnie.

Mark and Loren’s positions were made possible through the generosity of donors to the 2013 Birdathon and the Winnie Burkett Intern Fund. Please help us welcome them to Houston Audubon.
