About Sarah Mabey, Assistant Professor and Co-Director of the Environmental Studies Program at Hiram College: Professor Mabey teaches courses related to her training in conservation biology and her diverse interests in environmental studies (Conservation Biology, Humans and the Environment, Ornithology/Field Ornithology, Wildlife Management, and Wildlife Rehabilitation as well as topical seminars on climate change and campus sustainability). She teaches several of these courses “in the field” at the James H. Barrow Biological Field Station. In her research, Professor Mabey is particularly interested in the dynamics of migration ecology and stopover behavior and the challenges associated with protecting birds and their habitats beyond the boundaries of parks and preserves. Students conducting research with Dr. Mabey get up at the crack of dawn to investigate a wide range of questions related to the impact of anthropogenic change on wildlife populations and behavioral ecology. After years of living the roaming life of a field biologist and working in unimaginably beautiful places across North and Central America and Europe, Professor Mabey now happily makes her home in the village of Hiram where you might find her reading The New Yorker in the garden, playing with her daughter, or planning her next trip “home” to the Rocky Mountains.
