Alan Ivory is responsible for implementing Scientist in Every Florida School program activities primarily in Marion and Levy counties. In this role, he provides teachers and students the ability to have an open line of communication with scientists and relate what they are learning to real-world applications.

Ivory earned his bachelor’s degree in wildlife ecology and conservation from the University of Florida, where he went on to help with a habitat restoration project for an endangered fish in the Grand Canyon, before starting his journey with the Scientist in Every Florida School Project in West Palm Beach.

While in West Palm Beach, he worked in cooperation with Loggerhead Marinelife Center to visit Title 1 schools and teach students about common issues that sea turtles face, while giving them a hands-on look into the life of an ecologist.
