Peter Porello, IVLA's 2020 Scholarship Winner
Peter will be attending the University of New Haven in New Haven, Connecticut, where he will be studying Marine Biology. Peter’s future plan is to get his master’s degree and PhD in Marine Ecology, as he one day hopes to study populations of Right Whales to monitor their health. He found his calling by hearing about the environmental injustices that occur throughout the world, including deforestation, poaching, overfishing, and the many other abuses. With this in mind, Peter decided to walk in the footsteps of his ancestors and protect the Earth that we are all a part of.
