Robin Vance

Robin is a West Coast intern with Cascadia for the 2021 winter season who currently lives in Olympia, Washington. Since attaining a bachelor’s degree in anthropology with a minor in environmental science from the University of Florida in 2017, she’s been involved in various conservation-related positions, including aiding with bird surveys, camera trapping, wildlife rehabilitation, and environmental education working three seasons as a ranger for the National Park Service. Robin has recently re-discovered the passion for marine life she developed as a child growing up in southwest Florida, and is currently applying for graduate programs where she can explore opportunities to study cetacean ethology. Robin is thrilled to have been given the opportunity to help contribute to Cascadia’s decades-long research photo-identifying baleen whales.
