Laura Chamberlin

Community Engagement Coordinator, WHSRN Executive Office

In September 2013, Laura Chamberlin joined the Manomet team as Delaware Bay Program Coordinator for the Shorebird Recovery Project.


In her new role, Chamberlin will be responsible for implementing the "Celebrate Delaware Bay" campaign and its collaborative strategies for conservation of shorebird species and their habitats. She will build support for this conservation through collaborations with all sectors, including with those involved with site-management, research and monitoring. She will focus especially on public outreach and education via social marketing.


Chamberlin’s focus in the conservation field has been on engaging people and working to change behavior for lasting conservation. Most recently, she has been working to reduce litter in the Potomac Watershed while at the Alice Ferguson Foundation (AFF). Prior to the AFF, Chamberlin spent over two years with a small environmental nonprofit in eastern California focused on conserving public lands through stewardship and education. From 2004 to 2006, she served in the Peace Corps in Niger, West Africa, as an agricultural and natural resource management volunteer.


Native to the eastern shore of Maryland, Chamberlin holds a B.S. in Animal Science with a minor in Wildlife Biology from the University of Rhode Island.
