New Service Voices: Keenan Adams, Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge Complex

Keenan Adams, Assistant Refuge Manager, Pelican Island NWR Complex.

In today's post, we have a guest blogger as our part of our new series on New Service Voices: Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge Complex Assistant Refuge Manager, Keenan Adams.  Keenan has been with the Service since 2008 when he served as a Refuge Operations Specialist. Keenan holds an M.S. degree in Forest Resources from Clemson University and a PhD in Wildlife Biology from Clemson University.  At Clemson, he concentrated his work on human dimensions of forest/wildlife management and land ethic.

Every morning on my commute to work, I watch the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean as I drive south on a coastal highway that overlooks Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge.  Sometimes, on my way home, I'll take a detour to Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuges’ centennial trail to watch the sun set over Indian River Lagoon. In the period between sun-up and sun-down, there may have been close to three hundred sea turtles laying eggs on our refuge.

Seriously, how cool is that?
