Internships — The Next Generation

Conservation & Education News, News of Asa Wright

Gerana Alfonso.

While we work to develop an interest in the environment among the very young, we are keenly aware of the need for continuity. Asa Wright has developed partnerships with the University of the West Indies, University of Trinidad & Tobago and with the Eastern Caribbean Institute of Agriculture and Forestry. Students and recent graduates can thus assist as interns at Asa Wright. This year, we were pleased to welcome back Gerana Alfonso, who had spent time with us in 2011, and Christiphire Kelly, who both came to participate in our Camp Safari and other projects this year.

Christiphire is a BSc (UWI) graduate in Agribusiness Management (2012), and part of UWI’s AGBU 2008 Internship programme. She spent eight weeks at Spring Hill, working mostly on the Camp Safari and the Tour & Explore projects.

Gerana, our returning intern, is now an undergraduate at the UWI.

We wish Christiphire and Gerana all the best in their careers in nature, and look forward to working with them in the future.
