Sarah Turner

Research Assistant (936) 676-8660

Sarah Turner joined Texas A&M Natural Resources Institute in March 2015 as a student technician and is currently a research specialist. Her research primarily focuses on military lands management and floral/faunal ecological interactions and has included projects on a variety of taxa from the White Sands Pupfish and the Lesser Prairie Chicken to invasive vegetation species control. She approaches ecological issues from a habitat aspect, as she believes wildlife management stems from understanding vegetation community interactions of areas utilized by wildlife. 

Sarah received a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in wildlife and fisheries sciences at Texas A&M University. She received her Ph.D. in ecosystem science and management from Texas A&M in 2024.

Sarah was raised in Lufkin, Texas, where her affinity for the outdoors developed at a young age. During her free time, Sarah enjoys hunting, fishing, running, and spending time with her family.
