Public Service Scholars

Patrick Freeman (Earth Systems BS ’13, MS ’14)

Patrick is an adept and experienced conservation scholar first and foremost, but he is also a conservation leader, communicator, and activist. He has become a powerful voice for elephant conservation and there is no doubt that his voice is already making a difference in the struggle to save wild elephants. He demonstrates his passion for this issue through his beautiful wildlife photography, his research into the social dynamics of wild elephant herds, and through his anti-poaching advocacy work with the Bay Area group March for Elephants. As part of this group, he helped pull off the San Francisco leg of the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos in October, the largest animal rights-related protest in San Francisco history. He is an emerging international scholar and leader in this field. Patrick has also given of himself to the ES community as a mentor and teacher. He has worked as an Earth Systems student advisor (2012/2013), head teaching assistant (2013-2014), and senior seminar teaching assistant (2014).
