Alexis Wrate

University of California


My name is Alexis Wrate and I am from Sacramento, California. I graduated last June from the University of California, Los Angeles with a B.S. in Biology. Some of my favorite things include traveling to new places, music, pizza, and anything with animals. My love for animals led me to take some courses in animal behavior, marine biology, and conservation biology, which helped me realize that I have a passion for conservation. My senior year I volunteered at the California Wildlife Center and got to experience what it is like to work in animal care and animal rehabilitation. After graduation, I interned for the sea turtle care and training department at Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium. Working with sea turtles was a dream come true, and I fell even more in love with those incredible species. I loved getting to know their different personalities, and I can’t wait to get to know all of the turtles at Sea Turtle Inc!
