Nicholas Da Silva, State Fellow 2020
University Affiliation: California State University Long Beach
State Fellow

Nicholas Da Silva will graduate with a master's degree in biology from California State University Long Beach in 2020. He investigated how habitat provided by two native seagrass species (Zostera marina and Ruppia maritima) influenced macroinvertebrate community composition within an urbanized coastal lagoon to better inform future regional seagrass management considerations under climate change conditions. Da Silva also worked at Coastal Resources Management Inc. as a marine biologist, managing a range of coastal submerged aquatic vegetation restoration, conservation, and mitigation projects.

Da Silva will assist with implementation of the State Parks Sea Level Rise Strategy and support the State Parks Estuary Initiative – a comprehensive statewide approach for the preservation of estuaries and lagoons within California State Parks.
