About Me Wendee Nicole became the first recipient of the $20,000 Mongabay Prize in Environmental Reporting in Nov 2013 to report on tropical biodiversity conservation. She won top honors in the 2013 American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA) writing awards for her article Did Tap Water Kill Lou Gehrig published in Pacific Standard. her reporting has taken her to the far reaches of the globe – from the Himalayan foothills of Nepal in search of endangered red panda, to the Peruvian Amazon to report on community-based conservation with Yine Amerindians, to the Galapagos Islands to write about carbon-neutral travel, and diving with sharks in Australia for Discovery Channel's Shark Week. Her work has been published in Scientific American, Nature, National Wildlife, Ensia, Environmental Health Perspectives and many others. I earned a M.S. in Wildlife Ecology from Texas A&M University in 1995, and was awarded a prestigious NSF Graduate Research Fellowship from 2003-2006 while working towards a doctorate at Rice University in evolutionary biology (M.A. and PhD candidacy achieved in 2005). Since 1995, I have been publishing in magazines such as National Wildlife, Nature, Audubon, Smithsonian, Environmental Health Perspectives, and Scientific American, as well as Discovery Channel, Travel Channel, and Animal Planet Online. I am based in Houston, Texas. Please visit my website for sample clips, photos and a link to my blog
