My name is Samantha Glover and I am the new Aquarist/Environmental Educator here at The Wetlands Institute. In May 2018, I graduated with a degree in marine science from Stockton University. During my undergraduate career at Stockton, I interned for the American Littoral Society Fish Tagging Program. I assisted the tagging director with tagging fish, inputting tag data, and public outreach. In addition, I also worked on a small research project during my last semester titled American Lobster Biology and Commercial Fishery Dynamics of New Jersey, which was presented at the 2018 American Fisheries Society meeting in Atlantic City. Currently, I also work as a fisheries technician for New Jersey Fish and Wildlife, Bureau of Marine Fisheries. In my spare time, I love to volunteer as much as I can. I have participated in beach clean-ups, shark tagging in Belize, horseshoe crab tagging, bridge-netting with Rutgers, and a NOAA fisheries bottom trawl survey around the Gulf of Maine/ Georges Bank. I grew up near the ocean in Monmouth County, so my fascination with marine life began at a young age. My passion for the marine science field grew even more, when I was about 9 years old, after reading the book Shark Lady by marine scientist Dr. Eugenie Clark. I instantly knew I wanted to study fish and get involved in wildlife conservation. While at The Wetlands Institute, I hope to increase my skills in aquatic husbandry, and more importantly, inspire others to conserve our wildlife and natural environment.
