Humor and drama pervade tales of a wildlife biologist helping puffins, alligators, and more. A petite gal in a tough job shows what biologists risk to save our wild creatures.

Abstract:
GATORS, GOURDHEADS, AND PUFFLINGS is the true tale of the everyday life of a wildlife biologist—but it’s far from mundane. With humor and drama, Ms. Jewell weaves vignettes of her work in the wilds from Maine to Florida, studying alligators, wood storks (gourdheads), puffins (babies are pufflings), and more. As a petite gal in a traditionally male occupation, the author deals with situations in a resourceful and captivating way. She brings the wild animals and the places they live to life and shows why biologists feel compelled to protect them.
