Over the summer months we were able to generate tons of content from photos and videos to blog posts. We have met some many great people here at the field station and locals as well! If you enjoy being outdoors and are as in love with media as you are with nature apply for this Internship! As you can see from the video above we are not used to being in front of the camera. This may have been the hardest thing we have had to do all summer! Aside from battling the mosquitoes.
This internship has taught us so much about the area and the nature that calls this place home or even just a rest stop. It has also opened our eyes to how powerful media can be in environmental education.
The staff here at the field station is one you will find no where else. From our supervisor Elise all the way up to the director! Everyone is more than welcoming and are excited about education and that is where our personalities clicked!
Media can be used for many different purposes good or bad, but it can be useful in benefiting environmental education which for the Chincoteague Bay Field Station is what they are all about!

Hi! I'm Savannah Geary. I'm a rising senior at the University of Miami majoring in Ecosystem Science and Policy and minoring in Biology, Film, and Communications.
This internship was a fantastic experience for me. I was able to satisfy my Ecosystem Science internship requirement while working within my favorite medium.
I have a background in comedy - I've worked on UMTV's Off the Wire for three years - but my end-game goal is to be a science communicator that uses film to connect with a general audience. This internship was a really cool way to dip my toes in the field while exploring a diverse set of beautiful ecosystems.
During my last year at UM, I'm planning on producing a series of environmental education videos for the ECO Agency on campus. I'm really excited to get to use all of the knowledge I gained over the summer!

My name is Cole Kresch, I am from Nazareth Pennsylvania and this internship is concluding my undergraduate degree at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania!
This internship is unique for my major of environmental planning. Many of the students of my major for thier internship are more likely to be interning at a county conservation office back in Pennsylvania. I used my course experience as well as my love for photography to apply for an internship that was the best of both worlds.
As I was a key role in my university newspaper The Voice as well as a photographer for all events on campus, it allowed me to almost pick up where I left off doing a lot of similar things here at The Field Station. However, in a much different environment. My major of environmental planning has given me a background in what all is happening to our environment which was a huge help for this position. I started to become interested in photography as a profession in high school which allowed me this awesome opportunity with CBFS. The Field Station does so many great things for environmental education and for locals as well!
After this internship I plan to continue growing my own photography business and also continuing my search for a job opportunity that allows me to combine my love of nature and photography.
