Maegen Esquibel

Mae is currently an Oregon State University Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation graduate student researching aquatic and terrestrial wildlife interactions in the Pacific Northwest. She’s worked as a field biologist for several years, spending time on aquatic wildlife projects in Yosemite National Park, helping with large carnivore ecology studies, and monitoring threatened and endangered species like northern spotted owls and marbled murrelets in the Pacific Northwest.

Some of her academic and professional interests include geospatial modeling, bioacoustic monitoring, and restoration ecology. As a first-generation Native American student, Mae is passionate about helping support and amplify Indigenous and other historically marginalized voices in environmental decision-making.

When she’s not studying, Mae likes to spend her time backpacking, painting, cooking for loved ones, and spending time with her chiweenie puppy, Reggie.
