Rachel Precious

Rachel is a fan of all things wild, weird, and wonderful. Her love of animals and the environment, fueled by an insatiable appetite for exploring, has taken her from researching the adorable Ningbing in the Australian outback, to living aboard a sailboat stalking elusive cetaceans, to building large-scale puppets and performing in remote regions. She studied Wildlife Conservation Biology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where she received a scholarship for her writing from the New England Outdoor Writers Association in 2011. While her apartment in New York City remains minimally furnished, she has a fully stocked supply of glitter, fluorescent leggings, matcha tea, and a flourishing terrarium.
