Shannon Lalime recently moved to West Palm Beach from Buffalo, New York to pursue her passion as an Environmental Educator. She studied Biology and Environmental Ecology at The State University of New York at Purchase College and completed two degrees in 3 ½ years. Given her passion for the Marine Environment, moving to Florida was a natural fit. Shannon interned with The Friends of MacArthur Beach, as well as the Loggerhead Marinelife Center within their Education Departments. She also was a seasonal employee with Loggerhead Marinelife Center and Florida Safari Adventures, Build A-Field-Trip strengthening her experience as an Educator. Shannon’s commitment to the Environment doesn’t stop there, she has also been involved in various volunteer opportunities with John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, The Sea Turtle Conservation League of Singer Island, and The Leatherback Trust in Costa Rica. Given her extensive background as a biologist and educator we hope that Shannon will bring a new light to our programs.
