13 Oct Who is this guy?
My name is Michael (he/him), and I’m the newest intern at Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge in Liberty, Texas! My internship is for Outreach and Management, so I will be learning the ins and outs of our programs, trails, and community over the next five months.
I live in the Piney Woods of East Texas, and I recently graduated from Rice University with a degree in Environmental Science and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology. In the past, I’ve worked on projects regarding ecosystem services, habitat restoration, corporate sustainability, agriculture, and education. My work and studies have taken me to places like Belize, Madagascar, Hong Kong, Italy, West Virginia, and the Rio Grande Valley.
I’m super excited to be working closer to home and to apply (and develop) my skills through this internship. This experience will be a great kickstart to a career in conservation!
