Public-use Internship with Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge - Outer Banks, North Carolina

by Weiskittle, Jennifer Eileen

Abstract (Summary)
My internship with Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge primarily focused on public-use activities. I presented and developed educational programs, lead tours, staffed special events, provided nature interpretation, and assisted with visitor center operations. In addition to public-use activities, I performed building, public-use area, and hurricane maintenance duties. I also participated in the turtle volunteer program, a black bear population study, and brown pelican banding. This internship has given me the opportunity to contribute to conservation efforts while expanding my interpretation skills and my love for the environment.
