Anna Vallery is a Conservation Specialist with Houston Audubon. She runs the Natives Nursery, manages two northern sanctuaries, and helps manage the Bird-Friendly Communities Program. Her love of wildlife is life-long, but she discovered her love of birds during an internship on Midway Atoll working with Laysan Albatross. Since then, Anna has completed a master’s degree studying Galveston Bay’s shorebirds, seabirds, and wading birds at the University of Houston- Clear Lake. She is now surrounding herself with all the bird knowledge Houston Audubon has to offer!
