Kara Pellowe: Grad student explores how interaction of ecological, social factors affect sustainability

Kara Pellowe’s examination of the chocolate clam fishery on the coast of the Baja California Peninsula in Mexico has taught her that communities near and far can face similar challenges, and that lessons learned in one context can contribute to better understanding in another. “My education at UMaine has taught me the importance of forging connections between scientists and coastal communities.”
