Ever since an early age Crystal DiMiceli has been in love with the animal kingdom. Since then she has known that her path would be one of conservation and has worked steadily toward that end. She graduated from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry with a BS in Environmental Studies and more recently from Baruch College with a MPA in Nonprofit Management. She currently works for the Wildlife Conservation Society's Prospect Park Zoo caring for a range of species that serve as ambassadors for their wild cousins. It was through WCS that she had the opportunity to do field work in Belize's Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Preserve participating in a follow-up census of the reintroduction of the Black Howler Monkey to the area. Her background includes leading wildlife education programs and participating in environmental consulting work. Most recently, she has brought her passion for travel into the fold through interning with both the Rainforest Alliance's ecotourism division and in helping to launch a new wildlife tourism initiative called SeeTheWild.
