About Nanea Valeros

My first experience working for the Service was in 2015, when I was a DFP (Directorate Resource Assistant Fellowship Program) intern, and my project was with the Pacific Islands Fish and Wildlife Office (PIFWO) in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi. After graduating from the University of Hawaiʻi with my Master's in Natural Resources and Environmental Management, I worked as a biologist at PIFWO from 2016 to 2021. In 2021, I took a position with External Affairs in the Pacific Islands, serving both PIFWO and PIRAMO (Pacific Islands Refuges and Monuments), where I focus on outreach and education. I am also a member of Hui Hōʻai ʻIke, a group that shares the traditional and historical knowledge of the indigenous and local communities whose traditional and customary practices in Hawai‘i have contributed to and are integral to the stewardship of natural and cultural resources of Hawai‘i.
