Carissa Grove (PE)


 Carissa Grove


Carissa Grove is currently a fourth year biology student at the University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI). She is originally from Cambridge, Ontario, where she first developed her interest in the outdoors and then quickly turned into a love for fish and the waterways in which they reside. These past few years in university have only fueled that fire, allowing her to gain more experience in this field. The work term as a student research assistant at UPEI has allowed her to gain hands on field experience, and has really opened her eyes to many conservation issues in these areas. Her interest in the environment and the current issues with waterways has made her want to pursue a career in this field, in order to help create more sustainable and healthier habitats and ecosystems.
