Sam Keck Scott is a writer and biologist from Northern California. When not in the field saving salamanders and bird nests from bulldozers, you can find Sam at home in his Airstream trailer in rural Sonoma County, writing about his adventures. Last winter (in the northern hemisphere) Sam was working for the Biosphere Foundation as a mate on their 108-year-old sailboat, Mir, which they sailed from Bali to Raja Ampat and back, setting up small-scale coral restoration projects along the way. Follow Sam's adventures here, and you can find both the Biosphere Foundation and Sam on Instagram at @biospherefdn and @samkeckscott, and on Twitter at @biospherefdn and @samkeckscott
