Demaceo Howard


Demaceo grew up in the midwest with an insatiable curiosity about the world we live in. Upon graduating from Cornell College in 2014 with a degree in Biology he began pursuing work in the field of conservation. This first line of work started at the Osa Conservation in Costa Rica where he conducted field research and health assessments on several species of endangered sea turtles. Since then, Demaceo has become an Environmental Educator traveling from the west coast of the United States to the east working with students of all ages & backgrounds. In 2016, he spent a summer living on Utila, an island off the coast of Honduras, to obtain his PADI DiveMaster’s certification. Recently, he has been working in The Bahamas where he assisted in the reestablishment of a nature conservancy on Andros island. Here, he created an Environmental Education curriculum to be implemented into the island’s primary schools. Additionally, during this time he collaborated with partners on coral reef restoration projects & fisheries management research. He is interested in studying & resolving the ethical dilemmas that arise in the field of conservation. When he’s not working, Demaceo enjoys writing and listening to music, an audiobook, or an entertaining podcast.
