Wildlife Intern Introduction: Aiko Goldston

Hello! My name is Aiko Goldston, and I am returning to Environment for the Americas, as this year’s Wildlife Intern at Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA). In this position, I will be monitoring and surveying various species of wildlife. Some of the species I will be working with are waterbirds, like Brandt’s Cormorant’s at Alcatraz, Western snowy plovers around Ocean Beach, and San Francisco garter snake at Mori Point in Pacifica. I am so excited to gain a deeper understanding of natural resource management as it relates to wildlife conservation.

I am originally from San Jose, California (1 hour south of San Francisco) and I feel especially lucky to be able to immerse myself in the beautiful environments that I grew up with! I am looking forward to learning more about the interconnectedness of the many different ecosystems of the San Francisco-Bay Area.

Below is a short introduction video of me at one of my main sites, Alcatraz! In the background is the Bay Bridge, which connects San Francisco to Oakland and the East Bay.
