Maya Higgins, Scripps 10 Biology graduate and 2010-11 Thomas J. Watson Foundation Fellow just returned from a year spent exploring ecotourism on islands around the world. Maya will give a presentation on her Watson year for the Scripps community on August 30 at noon. Her proposal, "Islands in Paradise or Islands in Peril? Ecotourism in fragile environments" led Maya to Madagascar, New Zealand, Palau, Yap and the Galapagos Islands. We particularly encourage Scripps students who may be interested in travel fellowships opportunities to hear Maya's presentation since she will soon be leaving on a Fulbright Fellowship to Thailand. Please feel free to bring your lunch up to the Hampton Room.
