Mongabay.com has been a part of Megan’s family for years. Her mother is the staff photographer for the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and has contributed photos and content to the site. As a result, she has had the privilege of practically growing up at places such as the Bronx Zoo, surrounded by animals and wildlife. She even worked in the Children’s Zoo where she took care of domestic and exotic animals. Since she was young she has been writing about interesting animals and places, even for Mongabay.com. Megan has even traveled to developing countries to help WCS document their conservation programs in Zambia, Ecuador, and the Cayman Islands.
