Marlowe Starling is an environmental reporter from Miami, pursuing her master's in science, health and environmental reporting at New York University. She graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor's in journalism and a specialization in wildlife ecology.
As an undergraduate, she interned for Mongabay, an international environmental news organization, where she wrote long-form stories on scientific discoveries and environmental justice issues. She also produced videos.
