Anna Silverstein, Wilson Lab (Class of 2021)

BA Candidate, Environmental Studies, Mount Holyoke College

Anna is a junior at Mount Holyoke College majoring in Environmental Studies and minoring in Coastal and Marine Sciences. She became very passionate about urban environmentalism and conservation after she worked on multiple conservation campaigns in New York City, most recently working with the student led lobbying group, NYPIRG, on their campaigns to create a safer, more sustainable NY. Before that she worked at the New York Aquarium in Coney Island on their campaign to create a National Marine Sanctuary off New York’s coast. It is her hope that she can use this interest to work to create equitable, sustainable and healthy communities of peoples and their ecosystems
