Susquehanna Bank Summer Nonprofit Internship Award

Nicole Claycomb

During my internship at the Philadelphia Zoo, I will engage guests and talk to them about the animals found around the zoo. I will have small stations set up with games or “biofacts,” such as skulls or pelts, which relate to the animal I am discussing with the visitors. I will also have the opportunity to observe and monitor particular animals in the zoo for an individual observational study. These experiences will help sharpen my skills with experimental work as well as conveying information to the public. This internship relates to my career goals because I would like to support conservation and do my part to help save wildlife and natural habitats.
