I'm Macy from Charlotte, N.C. I'm currently a senior at UNCW and majoring in marine biology. I chose this internship because I have a deep passion for marine life, so I love having the opportunity to help the sea turtles here!
Hey! My name is Madison and I’m from Greensboro, NC! I’m a senior and my major is Marine Biology. I love sea turtles and I want to do something like this as a future job! I've also heard great things about this internship through friends and other UNCW students. I love the beach, sunsets/sunrises, hanging out with friends, and shopping!
My name is Luke and I’m a junior at UNCW. I’m from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. I am a Biology major with an interest towards conservation/sustainability. I chose this internship to hopefully gain experience working with endangered species as well as to build connections to further my future in the biology world. Also, turtles are very cool.

My name is Andrew. I’m from Maryland and this is my third year at UNCW. I’m majoring in Marine Biology. I love fishing and am part of the UNCW rowing club.
My name is Tyler. I am a sophomore at UNCW from Summerfield, North Carolina. I am double majoring in Marine Biology with a concentration in Marine Conservation & International Studies with a concentration in Environment. I chose this internship to get a more medical approach to hands-on experience to further my own conservation work portfolio. I love to surf, chase sunrises & sunsets, and I love to go backpacking.
I’m Brianna, a 20-year-old sophomore majoring in Marine Biology from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I have a concentration in Conservation as well as a double minor in Neuroscience and Oceanography. I have always grown up wanting to work with turtles and work in marine mammal rescue, strandings and necropsies. Therefore, I wanted that experience but with a sea turtle hospital, especially since my goal for a future career is to work in marine rehabilitation. I love outdoor adventure activities as well as cooking, reading and writing my own music. Coffee shops are my favorite place to hang out and I love to travel.
Hi, my name is Lauren! I am a Marine Bio and Pre-Vet major. I am from Kernersville North Carolina and I plan to become an aquatic animal veterinarian! I love to watch sunsets, go to coffee shops, and spend time with my pets! I have two dogs, a cat, and a fish! After gaining experience working with dogs and cats at a veterinary clinic, I knew that the world of veterinary medics was the place for me! Working at this internship allows me to gain experience for vet school and help care for a species I love and want to help protect!
My name is Chrystal. I’m a UNCW senior majoring in Biology, Pre-Vet. I chose this internship because I have done a little of everything with land animals and would like to learn a little about sea creatures. I volunteer with All 4 Cats and Paws 4 Purpose Rescue when I can. I write medical protocols for All 4 Cats and I transport animals for Paws 4 Purpose, as well as trap neuter, vaccinate and return cats in all of Onslow and surrounding areas.
