Declan Pizzino, B.S.

Geospatial Analyst

Declan joined the Conservation Biology Institute on a permanent basis in November 2019, having completed a brief internship with CBI the previous year. With a B.S. in Environmental Science and a certificate in Geographic Information Science from Oregon State University, Declan is excited to be part of a team that is focused on a science-based approach to improving the world. 

Declan’s love for the natural world has informed and enhanced his passion for conservation. He spent his early life backpacking throughout the desert Southwest and while living in southern California, he gained an appreciation for the ocean and a love for surfing. He also worked with the Nature Collective (formerly San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy) in San Diego, CA to complete a water quality monitoring internship.  While working through school at OSU, he interned with Yamhill County Public Works in McMinnville, OR to help develop a county-wide GIS roadside vegetation inventory. Prior to joining CBI, Declan worked for Lane Council of Governments in Eugene, OR where he leveraged his GIS and interpersonal skills in the local government arena.

Declan lives in Corvallis with his wife, Lauren, and their houseful of pets and plants. In his spare time, he loves to play Dungeons and Dragons, get outdoors and hike, or explore local waterways in his handmade canoe.
