Laura Berry

Laura Berry is the Marketing Assistant at Toucan Rescue Ranch. Her role is to support the Marketing Manager in creating marketing and communications materials, such as social media, fundraising campaigns, email marketing, and media content.

Laura, originally from Douglassville, Pennsylvania, graduated from Millersville University with a Bachelor’s degree in science writing and a minor in Spanish culture studies. She began her current position at Toucan Rescue Ranch after successfully completing a 6-month marketing internship.

Laura is an early-career science communications professional, hoping to one day secure a job with a wildlife nonprofit or scientific journal. Her university studies, which included many writing and publications classes and several levels of biology, led her to work at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, the world’s first refuge for birds of prey. Her employment here fostered her pre-existing passion for birds, which she brought to TRR. Laura has been striving to launch a bird-banding project called Anillos de Libertad. With this project, she hopes to create better protocols and practices for the birds cared for at TRR.
