Nature Conservancy scientist Jaymee Marty is driven to answer questions. Like whether she could make the 2012 US Olympic women’s marathon team after taking up running just 6 years ago. (She’s almost there — she’s qualified for next year’s trials!)
And it’s that same drive that fuels her curiosity as a Nature Conservancy scientist, working in Northern California’s beautiful grasslands to answer questions about grazing’s effects on biodiversity there. Watch this video and find out what makes Jaymee run!
