Tanya worked with the Nature Conservation Foundation in India for her master’s research, focused on the impacts of fuel wood consumption on tiger habitat. Tanya’s most recent passions revolve around food choices, and local and organic farming. She grew her first garden in 2009 and learned how to preserve food and make the connection with natural resources. Tanya is very passionate about the notion that one person can make a difference, and that the small daily decisions we make in our consumption choices are very important.

They are currently sharing their knowledge and stories about the environment and sustainability with students and communities across the nation.
