Isaac Aguilar is a senior at UC Berkeley studying Ecosystem Management and Molecular Environmental Biology with an interest in scientific research at the intersection of conservation and community-centered natural resource management. Growing up in a Latin American community and exploring the deserts, mountains, and coast of San Diego, California, Isaac developed a fascination with the outdoors. In 2017, Isaac was a Project Green Challenge finalist and discovered a passion for environmental conservation. Since then, Isaac has engaged in environmental leadership as a peer advisor for the College of Natural Resources, president of The Wildlife Society at Berkeley, and Doris Duke Conservation Scholar. A naturalist at heart, Isaac has travelled around the diverse ecosystems of California, México, the Polynesian Archipelago, and Alaska for environmental research projects aimed at biodiversity conservation.
