Name: Nicole Morin
Education: Wamogo High School
Nicole is a graduate of Wamogo Agricultural High School and will be attending the Paul Smith College of environmental sciences in the fall of 2013. Her passion for the great outdoors and love for the wildlife that calls our forest home, is the driving force behind her ambitious goals. Nicole intends on pursuing a degree in Conservation Law and Wildlife Biology.
Nicole is no stranger to extreme weather conditions or the adrenaline rush of handling wildlife. Four years of volunteer work at White Memorial Conservation Center has trained her to track animal prints in the snow and catch frogs in the mud bogs. She has cared for injured porcupines and raised an abandoned gray fox pup until they could be released into the wild. Assisting in the tranquilizing of a full grown black bear has been her greatest field study accomplishment to date.
Teaching kids camps at White Memorial has always been Nicole’s number one outlet for educating future generations on the importance of conservation. Working with the FFA at local fairs, and her years in pageantry have allowed her network of contacts to grow in new directions.
Nicole’s ultimate goal is to one day host her own television show called “Nature’s Classroom,” showcasing baby animals in their natural environment for everyone to fall in love with them as she has. She also plans to become one of the leading defenders of wildlife.
