Drew Villeneuve

Drew will be joining Hurricane Island this summer as the Research Assistant. A native of Rockville, Maryland, Drew earned his Biology degree from Bowdoin College just down the coast from Hurricane Island. While he studied the marine ecology of the Gulf of Maine at Bowdoin, he has also worked on research projects in Madagascar, Curaçao, Dominica, and (most exotic of all), California. Drew has experience in environmental education as well, working at the Spruce Knob Mountain Center in West Virginia teaching middle and high school students. Drew will start his Master’s program in Marine Sciences at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, this fall. In his spare time, Drew enjoys whitewater kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, and playing guitar.
