Laura K. Marsh, Ph.D: Houseboat Amazon

Laura K. Marsh, Ph.D.
Houseboat Amazon

Dr. Marsh has worked, traveled, and lived in 30 countries. She specializes in tropical rainforest ecology, studying everything from plants to monkeys to jaguars to people. She is the co-founder and director of Global Conservation Institute, a 501c3 that strives to develop creative science solutions to global challenges to the conservation of nature and natural resources. From January-May 2017, she led the "Houseboat Amazon" expedition to a remote watershed in Brazil to look for a missing saki monkey, which had been collected for museums in the 1930s, and had not been seen alive since. In addition to scientific publications and conference presentations, she developed two documentaries, Houseboat Amazon, and In Search of the Lost, which are on-going along with the development of eco-literacy podcasts and video blogs on Ecoztreamz.com. She is a Nichols award-winning screenwriter, author of six feature-length screenplays, a musical book (with Tony Moss), and two TV pilots. Across the Amazons is currently in development for large and small screens, and for the stage as a musical. It was performed live in October, 2016, at the Jean Cocteau Theater, Santa Fe, NM to a sold-out audience.
