The following congratulatory statement was released by Dr. John Robinson, WCS’s Executive Vice President for Conservation and Science:“The entire Wildlife Conservation Society team extends congratulations to our colleague Dr. Stacy Jupiter for being named a 2019 MacArthur Fellow. Stacy is wonderfully deserving of this award.
“Stacy is a champion for the world’s ocean, using science to develop pragmatic solutions for wildlife, people, and coastal ecosystems. What makes Stacy a great scientist and conservationist is her understanding of the importance of integrating cultural practices and science to solve complex problems—specifically the challenges brought on by such threats as overfishing and climate change. And what makes her successful and loved by those who work with her is that she understands more than most the importance of collaboration with her colleagues and with the communities where she works.
