We’re excited to introduce a new Grizzly Corps member to our team: Modibo Keita!
Modibo Keita (he/him) is serving with Sustainable Conservation at the San Francisco office for the 2022-2023 GrizzlyCorps term. As a fellow, he will identify and assess opportunities for SGMA and CV-SALTS to increase the effectiveness of groundwater management through collaboration and consolidation. Prior to his service term, Modibo received a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Resource Management from Penn State where he also played for the university’s rugby team.
A nomadic upbringing has made it tough for Modibo to call anywhere home, but this has also helped him develop the capacity to adapt and feel comfortable everywhere. He grew up in Atlanta, DC, London, and Libreville, Gabon. However, his family now resides in Lagos, Nigeria. He is driven towards environmental work as a result of climate change and its consequences across West Africa and the Sahel, namely water scarcity. So naturally, his primary focus lies in developing systems of sustainable water management. Outside of work, Modibo enjoys watching or playing soccer and rugby, making music, biking around, and spending time in nature.
