SANIBEL, Fla. (June 28, 2019) – Hunter Brown has joined the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) as its newest Conservation Education and Marketing Intern. The six-month internship began on June 1.
Brown, who grew up in Fort Myers, recently earned his Bachelor’s of Science in Aquatic and Marine Biology with a minor in Environmental Studies from Stetson University in DeLand, Florida. He hopes to attend graduate school in the future to study animal behaviors.
The Conservation Education & Marketing Internship is a six-month program designed for those interested in pursuing careers in environmental conservation, communication or other related fields. Interns learn about CROW on an organizational level and apply the information through public speaking engagements and outreach events. They also learn about the impact of communication through social media outlets and community partnerships with local newspaper and media companies.
“I’m really looking forward to improving my public speaking skills through sharing my passion for wildlife with others,” says Brown. “It is also a great opportunity for me to gain some hands on learning about public relations and social media from an organization and people that share my excitement for helping our environment.”
Brown will be assisting with presentations, leading tours of CROW’s hospital, and engaging with visitors to the Education Center and events. He will also be helping develop content for CROW’s social media pages, website and exhibits in the Education Center.
