I'm Mary Beth (aka. aReluctantMom.com), a wildlife biologist who has spent years working on wildlife conservation issues both as a field biologist and as a lobbyist in Washington, DC.
In the field, I implemented conservation projects for birds and marine animals; in DC, I fought to pass natural resource conservation legislation and distributed millions in funding for fish and wildlife conservation programs.
In short, I LOVE ANIMALS and was "reluctant" to leave my work behind for maternity leave.
But now that I'm a mom, I'm trying to instill that same love of animals in my kiddo. It fills my heart to see him try to move turtles out of the road, rescue jellyfish on the beach, and save moths that get into the house.
The world around us is fascinating, as is the wildlife in it. My goal is to inspire a love and respect for this planet that'll make the next generation socially and environmentally conscious and motivate them to protect the earth, its inhabitants, and its resources.
