About Rosalie Wetzel

Rosalie has a master's degree in Environmental Policy and Wildlife Management and a bachelor’s degree in Media and Arts Management from University of Massachusetts-Amherst. She is also a Certified Interpretive Guide through the National Association for Interpretation. In 2021, Rosalie first worked with USFWS in the South Dakota (SD) Ecological Services Field Office through the Directorate Fellows Program, where she completed the first comprehensive inventory of bumblebee species found throughout the state in a Data Collection and Summary of SD Bumblebees project. In addition to creating a species database and an interactive data visualization tool, she also enjoyed getting to survey black-footed ferrets in Badlands National Park. Then she worked at Hawk Mountain Raptor Sanctuary in Pennsylvania as a Sanctuary Steward and Invasive Species Specialist working on forest restoration and invasive earthworm research. Passionate about both science and the arts, she is also a wildlife photographer and writer. When she is not working on a creative project, she is likely rock climbing or embarked on a new outdoor adventure. Rosalie joined the Migratory Bird Program in 2023 as a Communication Specialist where she continues to work with our program to conserve birds and their habitats.
