Hello! My name is Victoria Pagano and I am currently a junior at Princeton High School. I love herpetology and would like to pursue a career in the field, and this study is a major step in that direction. All funding is greatly appreciated and I hope that I can get you all as excited about this project as I am!
My experience includes two prior independent research projects; one on the effect of increased acidity on the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem, and the other is a survey of chytrid fungus in central New Jersey. I am the leader of the PHS “Cool” Blooded Club which explores native and captive herpetofauna, and am creating the New Jersey Herpetological Society as part of my Girl Scout Gold Award.
