Does anyone know of internships in either the San Fran. bay area,
Belize, or Costa Rica (a bit of an odd request). I'm interested in
doing work with coastal ecosystems. At this point I'm not too picky
about the focus of the work, just that it involve ecosystems. I have a
fairly decent background in wildlife rehab., particularly marine
mammals. Thus I have a pretty good idea of what's going on
physiologically and have seen first hand how changes to a particular
habitat effect the local wildlife pop.
Here's a copy of my resume. Any help or leads would be greatly
P.S. If anyone has knowledge of a paying job that may be related to my
background, I would love to hear about that as well.
