About Jennifer Solomon

Jennifer is an Assistant Professor in the Human Dimensions of Natural Resources Department in the Warner College of Natural Resources at CSU. Students and faculty from Warner College’s new course, Integrated Social and Ecological Field Methods in Belize, will engage in a collaborative education program with Belizean high school students and the Toledo Institute for Development and Environment (TIDE) to provide the first estimates of rates of marine plastic accumulation in southern Belize.  This collaborative education program will also gather information on what drives plastic consumption and barriers to behavioral change. Jennifer is collaborating with Celia Mahung, Executive Director of TIDE (Toledo Institute for Development and Environment); James Lord, Environmental Educator at TIDE; and a local high school teacher in Punta Gorda.
