Daniel Nienhuis
Field Team Leader and Collaborator

Daniel Nienhuis joined our Wildlife Monitoring and Primate Sensory Ecology programs recently in 2019. This year he will be taking on another challenge as he works on his double major in Honors Biology and Psychology, Neuroscience and Behavior at McMaster University. One of the things he misses from his summer with FPI spent in the Peruvian Amazon is going on late night and early morning hikes with the singular goal of observing wildlife. He believes that those with a similar passion for biodiversity and the natural sciences fare best in the field: “If you are not driven to collect the data, each day will become a chore and you will fail to appreciate the unique opportunity that has been given to you.”
