SANIBEL, Fla. (December 30, 2019) – Rachel Taylor has joined the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildife (CROW) as its newest Conservation Education and Marketing Intern. Her six-month internship began on December 2.
Taylor, who grew up in Palm Harbor, Florida, just north of Clearwater Beach, recently earned her Bachelor’s of Arts in Biology with a minor in Psychology from Maryville College in Maryville, Tennessee. She hopes to explore more aspects of her degree through future internships and aspires to one day teach biology.
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 gaining valuable marketing skills while learning more about wildlife that is commonly found in Southwest Florida,” says Taylor. “I love learning and just want to be a sponge that will soak up all the information I can from all areas especially since this internship combines my passion for education, conservation and wildlife.”
Taylor will be assisting with presentations, leading tours of CROW’s hospital, and engaging with visitors to the Education Center and events. She will also be helping develop content for CROW’s social media pages, website and exhibits in the Education Center.
