Marie Racioppa
Priority Place Engagement Intern

Marie Racioppa started at MTRI in January 2023 as a Priority Place Engagement Intern. Marie is broadly interested in ecosystem stewardship and the recovery of declining species across Canada and globally. She is originally from Ontario and obtained a B.Sc. from the University of Toronto and a Master of Environmental Studies from the University of Waterloo. Her previous work focused on using tracking data to inform conservation planning decisions for game bird species including Greater Sage-grouse and Mallards. She is excited to build on her passion for science communication and inspire community members to connect with the land via outreach and engagement for MTRI. Marie loves being outside and spotting unique or rare wildlife, especially when scuba diving and birding.
