BY VICTORIA METCALF
@ VOL 37
ON SEP 19, 2018
Dr. Victoria Metcalf is a marine biologist, geneticist and science communicator committed to making a difference. She has made many trips to the Antarctic, researching environmental change impacts on Antarctic fish and shellfish. Victoria manages the Participatory Science Platform, where communities, educators and scientists receive funding to work together on locally meaningful projects. She finds this a highly rewarding role that matches her passion for engaging everyone with science. Victoria has also been a steadfast advocate for women in STEM.
She balances all of this with being a single mother to her eight-year-old daughter, and they especially enjoy exploration of the world around them together on bike and foot. Here, Victoria discusses charisma in the natural world, how it impacts our conservation decisions, and how we can use a different lens to see beauty and value in all living things. She explores how such a change in perspective might also affect how we value and celebrate the all too often hidden contributions of women in, and the diversity of, science.
