Animal Jam Spotlight: Tierney Thys

Hey there, Jammers! Welcome back to the Animal Jam Whip for another post! ^.^

Today is the very first post of a new series I will be starting. It's called "Animal Jam Spotlight".

Each week I will be spotlighting someone of great importance to Animal Jam. Whether it's a famous Animal Jam YouTuber, AJHQ employee, or a National Geographic explorer.

This week, we're spotlighting one of the two fantastic scientists from National Geographic that work hard to educate us through Animal Jam videos: Tierney Thys!

Tierney Thys, born in 1966, is an American marine biologist, science educator, and National Geographic explorer. In 1988 she earned a degree in biology and graduated from Brown University. Since 2000, she and her colleagues have been studying the ocean sunfish, or more commonly known as the mola. Tierney has led numerous expeditions worldwide to accommodate her studies.

And there you have it! Now you know more about the brilliant Tierney Thys. :3

Have a wonderful day!
