Megan Shrum 

Megan Shrum has a BSc in Zoology from North Carolina State University and an MSc in Primate Conservation from Oxford Brookes University. Her love of lemurs came from her experiences volunteering and working at the Duke Lemur Center in Durham, NC. For her masters thesis, Megan traveled to remote areas in Northwest Madagascar within the range of the mongoose lemur in order to better determine the distribution and conservation status of the species. Megan worked as the Conservation Program Coordinator for Azafady in SE Madagascar from 2010-2012 where she developed research and community conservation projects in and around the largest remaining fragment of littoral forest, Sainte Luce. Through this experience she expanded her research knowledge beyond lemurs to reptiles, amphibians and botanicals. She was incredibly inspired by the community (especially the children!) of Sainte Luce.
