Dayna Reggero Recommendations


“As I return home and crack open my notes, I notice the word “cherish” has been written several times throughout the pages of dialogue I transcribed. And simply put, that has to be the best way to describe Reggero. She cherishes everyone, everything, and if you’re lucky enough to spend time with her, you too will cherish that.”

Lauryn Higgins, Salon

“A real pro both as a specialist and an adroit generalist in addition to being a genuinely great human being.”

Mack Pearsall, Founder, The Collider

“It’s tough finding the right human (or humans) to work with. That’s why it’s important for me to not only work with good workers but also good people. Dayna is definitely one of those! She’s committed to quality and what’s best for the planet, putting those needs before her own. It’s a rare find.”​

Jerry James Stone, Discovery Communications

“A long time environmentalist who began a climate listening project four years ago… Reggero’s The Wood Thrush Connection documents a recent geotagging project which led to an incredible discovery about the Wood Thrush’s migratory path from North Carolina to Belize, capturing the intercontinental efforts between the Belize and North Carolina Audubon Societies to protect this bird amid a changing climate.”
