Wildlife Monitoring and Environmental Policy Intern (2021)
Hello! My name is Caleb May, and I am from Lakeville, Connecticut. I just graduated from Salisbury School in June. I will be attending the University of Vermont, where I will be majoring in wildlife and fisheries biology in the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources.
Due to the proximity to Great Mountain Forest, I have had experiences from an early age with both workshops and school trips that GMF sponsored. After a long time away from Great Mountain Forest, during COVID, I returned due to the rich birdlife that resides here, which caught my attention as I have been birdwatching since the age of seven.
I’m splitting my time this summer between wildlife monitoring and global environmental policy research. I am excited to absorb as much information as I possibly can. I’m eager to be exposed to issues in environmental policy through my work with Tamara. Working with Jody isn’t something that many people get to do, and I look forward to working with him and interns Rissa and Joe to learn about the different aspects of the forest that I have not had much experience with. Also, of course, I hope to see one of Great Mountain Forest’s famous moose!
I hope to continue my career in wildlife biology with a future focus on ornithology, the study of birds. Wildlife photography is something that is also incredibly appealing. The possibilities are endless, but one thing is for certain: I am super excited to be GMF’s wildlife and policy intern!
