Sacha Heath

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Lab Affiliation: Living Earth Collaborative

I am a conservation ecologist using basic and applied research to inform and evaluate biodiversity conservation. My studies have taken me from Alaska to Antarctica and from pristine wilderness areas to human dominated working lands. While I have a soft spot for feathered creatures —and birds have been the focus of most of my research— I am also fascinated by complex ecological interactions involving multiple taxa. As a Living Earth Collaborative Biodiversity Postdoctoral Fellow, I will be collaborating with researchers from Saint Louis University, Tyson Research Station, St. Louis Zoo, and St. Louis Audubon to study the effectiveness of a citizen-based backyard habitat conservation program along a rural-to-urban gradient of the St. Louis metropolitan area.
