Summer Interns Trained in Bahamian Terrestrial Natural History

Summer Interns Trained in Bahamian Terrestrial Natural History

Summer 2014 brought with it the first Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve Terrestrial Natural History Internship. The Preserve hosted two College of the Bahamas students, Shanel Adderley and Justin Storr, for six weeks of intensive field biology training.  They focused on learning the Botany, Entomology, Ornithology, Herpetology, and Geology of the Bahamian Archipelago and in doing so ventured deep into the coppice and other natural areas on Eleuthera. As a culmination of their six-week experience, the interns established the first Permanent Forest Research Plot in The Bahamas. We look forward to seeing what these two new Naturalists will do in the coming years!
