Spring Internship with The Mississippi Chapter of The Nature Conservancy

I’ve been interning with Mississippi TNC’s Marine Program all spring with barrier island bird populations, as well as conducting my Masters Project with oyster reef restoration. It was a great opportunity to learn from professional conservation biologists with plenty of wildlife viewing opportunities!┬áTNC will be posting a slideshow of some of my favorite photos from the summer, but here are several I took yesterday on my last day of field work.
