Myself holding a stick insect in a Costa Rican Rainforest.
Me holding a stick insect in Costa Rica last summer

My name is Camilo Jose Acosta-Garcia and I have the great honor of participating in this 2019 Mosaics in Science Internship. I am from Washington, and fittingly love hiking and wearing flannel shirts. I am a Biology Major and a Neuroscience minor at the University of Washington Bothell and a major entomophile. Much of my research and free time is spent studying the ecology of insects and their impacts on humanity. I am very excited to soon be starting my position at San Juan Island National Historic Park in Friday Harbor, WA, where I will be assisting in the conservation of the endangered Island Marble Butterfly. The history of this park and its endemic butterfly are fascinating, but that will have to wait for a future post!

Thanks for reading,

Camilo
