The Stratford Crier was saddened this week where we were notified week that Jennifer H. Mattei, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Biology, Sacred Heart University, died on Friday, December 9th.


Dr. Mattei was recognized worldwide for her conservation efforts. She founded and was the Director of Project Litmus, a Horseshoe Crab Specialist Group, in Stratford.

The Town of Stratford is indebted to Dr. Mattei for giving us our “living shoreline” through the use and placement of reef balls.

Dr. Mattei was an esteemed member of The International Union for the Conservation of Nature Species Survival Commission, Horseshoe Crab Specialist Group.

To learn more about Dr. Mattei’s contribution to our Town the following Stratford Crier articles were published by us.
