Simran Padget

Audubon Vermont Conservation Intern

From a young age Simran has had a passion for animals and the environment. She was born and raised in Burlington, Vermont and is a rising junior at Emmanuel College in Boston, majoring in Biology and double minoring in Sustainability and Gender and Women’s Studies. She chose these topics because while she has an interest in the STEM field, she thinks it is important to address anything you do with an intentional and informed mindset. Simran was drawn to Audubon by their conversation work. While she is new to the ornithology field, she is excited to join the team and learn from the experienced Audubon staff. When Simran is not learning bird songs she can be found working at a local surf shop, hiking, skiing, or skateboarding.
