Hi! It’s so nice to meet you.

Hey there, friend. I’m glad you’re here checking out this site! My name is Brooke, and I’m a conservation biologist, travel addict, and admirer of all things wild. My globetrotting has taken me to the bushes of Africa, India’s jungles, the pristine Galapagos Islands, polar bears’ frozen tundra, and more. Do you want to know what I’ve learned while visiting and studying the world’s wildest places? That people everywhere are pretty spectacular, and we all want a better, healthier planet. I started Rewildology to share stories from the incredible people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting; the good, the bad, and the hilarious. So, sit down, relax, pour yourself a tasty drink, and join the conversation.

Just in case anyone is curious, I received a Bachelor’s degree in Zoology from The Ohio State University (Go, Bucks!) and Master’s degree in (Conservation) Biology from Miami University’s Global Field Program. I’m also the Director of Conservation for The Wild Source, a wildlife biologist-owned safari company that is disrupting the industry through empowerment.

Hey, how’s it going?

My name is Heather and I’m glad you’re here checking out our cool website! I’m a conservation storyteller, master naturalist, audio/video tech nerd, and photographer. In my past life, I was an audio director, composer & sound designer for various video games for 20 years. I enjoyed my time in this creative and dynamic industry but constantly felt like I wanted to focus my talents on conservation. I’m excited to be part of the Rewildology team helping with audio, video & storytelling!

I have a bachelor’s degree in Communications and Multimedia from Denver Metro University. I received my Master Naturalist Certificate from Texas A&M and Agrilife Extension. You can see more of my work at HeatherValey.com
