Lucy O’Dea serves as Snow Leopard Conservancy’s Program Officer for education and administration. She graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a degree in Romance languages and Linguistics. With a keen interest in travel since she was a young girl, she has found herself exploring Mayan ruins, teaching English in Ulaanbaatar and learning the principals of permaculture and cacau production in northeastern Brasil. Now her focus is indebted to and enchanted by the snow leopard. She looks forward to connecting with conservationists and all people who hold a strong respect for our world. She works with Darla Hillard on education in the snow leopard range countries.
