Naya Black graduated from Louisiana State University in 2020 where she majored in natural resource ecology and management with a concentration in wildlife ecology. Black recently moved back to the USA from Kagoshima, Japan, where she worked as an English teacher with the Japanese Exchange and Teaching Programme. Black is looking forward to doing educational and event programming while at LSG.

Black says, “I’ve always wanted to absorb more knowledge about wildlife, plants and the other entities that make forests come alive. I have a background in environment-centered youth education, so it makes my heart flutter when I see kids get excited and concerned about the outdoors. I want to ignite that passion not only in children, but in adults too. I believe everyone has the right to enjoy the beauty of the planet.”
