15 May Beginning A New Journey – Introduction
Hi everyone! My name is Hannah and I will be the 2023 Fish and Feathers intern for the War in the Pacific National Historic Park. Having had the opportunities to do volunteer work at my local conservation park has made me appreciate the importance of preserving and protecting ancestral land. Currently, I am continuing my education in hopes of fulfilling my career goals to work in an environmental field, particularly in a conservation park. I’m strongly interested in preserving historical land and learning about the importance of it. What I’m looking forward to the most is the opportunity to be part of an organization that also promotes conservation.
Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of volunteer work, whether that’d be planting trees, creating a net system to catches invasive rhino beetles from eating coconut trees, or coastal clean ups. This has truly helped me get more involved with my community and wanting to preserve the culture along with the environment. I love being surrounded by nature as it allows me to be appreciative of the beautiful lands and the nourishment it has. I am looking forward to meeting new people, learning new skills and being a part of this community.
