New York City-based environmental journalist and researcher Cayte Bosler is working on her master’s of science degree in Sustainability Management at Columbia University's Earth Institute. She spent the summer of 2019 off the grid in Madidi National Park, assessing populations of jaguars, ocelots, monkeys, birds, and other species in the upper Amazon River basin in Bolivia, partly thanks to a grant from Fjällräven North America for whom she works as a local guide educating urban populations on how to care for local ecology.
Other recent expeditions studying ecology and changes to ecosystems due to climate change have included a trek to 17,000 ft in the Peruvian Andes researching the Andean Mountain Cat, and mapping biodiversity in Cuba with a team of scientists from the Wildlife Conservation Society.
As a fellow of the Explorers Club, she is passionate about exploring scientific and community-based solutions for the environment.
Her scientific interests include biodiversity mapping and conservation, urban ecology, climate policy decision making, and natural resource management.
