Dr. Stephanie Schuttler conducts research on the ecology, behavior, and conservation of mammals using camera traps and genetics. She is working with North Carolina teachers under the Students Discover program to implement eMammal, a citizen science camera-trapping program, into the curriculum of middle school classrooms and will use the student-collected data to study urban mammals. Dr. Schuttler’s blog and social media channels details her life in science, offers advice for students and professionals in science careers, and discusses ways to conserve Earth’s biodiversity.
About the “She Changed the World” Campaign
The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage. American women were granted the right to vote with the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, ratified on August 18, 1920, after a 72-year fight by suffragists. As part of a national campaign to commemorate this historic event, North Carolina’s Department of Natural and Cultural Resources will kick off a campaign titled “She Changed the World: NC Women Breaking Barriers” in March 2019, continuing through November 2020. This campaign focuses on North Carolina women past and present who have achieved amazing things in multiple disciplines to help make the world a better place.
