Amelia Weissman, MS

Amelia has her Master’s in marine biology and loves studying reptiles almost as much as fish.

As a member of the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists, she was able to foster a love of reptiles and amphibians and continues to enjoy expanding her knowledge. She currently lives in Georgia. 


Amelia has had years of experience working in the field with both wild reptiles and fish. She’s had the opportunity to be the lead researcher on several studies including a well circulated study on monkfish.

Amelia’s expertise extends to ecological conservation efforts, where she has played a pivotal role in habitat restoration projects aimed at increasing population stability for various reptile species. 

Her hands-on approach in the field has been instrumental in developing new strategies for environmental enrichment, contributing to the successful reintroduction of several at-risk species into their natural habitats.
