Sarah Whipple, PhD

Sarah Whipple is a biologist at the Fort Collins Science Center, whose interests lie in conservation, policy, and community ecology, as well as natural resource management and pollinator biology.

Sarah is interested in how we can manage landscapes amongst the world's most pressing challenges, including biodiversity loss, invasive species encroachment, and climate change. She is motivated in finding nature-based, research-oriented solutions that are tangible for land managers to implement. Sarah joined the USGS in 2023 and is currently working in the Carter research group on the North Central Climate Adaptation Science Center (NC CASC) Structured Science Syntheses project. This effort will better inform how land managers integrate climate change into the resource management decision-making process. She is also contributing to science plans for the Bureau of Land Management's National Landscape Conservation System, which are used to prioritize science needs and manage resources effectively.
