Research Deckhand

July 2022 - July 2022 Avalon, CA
“I loved interacting with a Pacific coast oceanic environment. Being able to study organisms in the kelp forest biome opened my eyes to the biodiversity found in other parts of the country. Understanding the scientific process of trapping and data collection furthered my interest in working in the field with large animals and accessing their health, behavior, and physiology.”
