Fisheries Biologist with the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department
Courtney Buckley grew up on Long Island, NY. Before calling Vermont home, Courtney spent her early career working in different habitats with all types of fish and wildlife including freshwater mussels in central Texas, Red Drum and Red Snapper in the Gulf of Mexico, various wildlife species on Long Island, NY, and Striped Bass in North Carolina’s coastal rivers. She received her BS in Environmental Science from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry and her MS in Marine Conservation and Resource Management from the University of South Alabama and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab. As a Fisheries Biologist with the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department she is passionate about the conservation of fish and their habitats throughout southern Vermont, including the prestigious Batten Kill. She feels fortunate to have such a beautiful and beloved river as her office!
