Conservation Intern at Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo


During my time at Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo (CBZ), I had several different forms of responsibility. I was responsible for providing animal care to the zoo's brook trout and eastern hellbenders. Additionally, I participated in several field research projects like horseshoe crab tagging as a part of Project Limulus, Candian goose banding with the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), and trolling the Long Island Sound with Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo CDC corp students and the Sound School.
