Rebeca Linhart is a PhD candidate in the Natural Resources Science department at URI. She studies arctic breeding shorebirds throughout the Western Hemisphere and aims to better understand their flight pathways and use of coastal habitats to aid in conservation. The goal of her work is to create highly applicable conservation recommendations both locally and throughout the hemisphere to mitigate the rapid declines being seen in shorebird populations. When she is not tracking shorebirds across the Americas, Rebeca can be found at home in New Bedford with her partner, their dogs Tilly and Brookie, and their menagerie of rescued fowl.
