Ivy Engel

Ivy is a current undergraduate student at the University of Wyoming. She is studying biology with minors in chemistry, journalism, and business. Hoping to go into science communication upon graduation in 2020, she’s excited to get a taste of the world of broadcast journalism and to share her love of science. In her free time, Ivy enjoys baking, reading, and spending time outdoors.

Wide open spaces, like much of Wyoming, are known to be strongholds for pollinators like butterflies. They often contain critical habitat and food resources, far away from the disturbance of human civilization. But it turns out even those areas are under threat.
