Summer 2010: Sea Turtle Internship at Bald Head Island Conservancy

I want to make some blog posts to keep everyone up to date on my adventures, and also for me to reflect on. I am starting with my position as a Sea Turtle Intern at Bald Head Island Conservancy a year and a half ago. Here is the summer in a summary of photos...

The crew of interns: Molly, Mary Mack, Alyssa, Liz, Kaitlyn, Andrew, Dave, Patrick, Brett, Wilson, Maureen, Kit, Sam, and me.
