Refuge welcomes new education intern | News, Sports, Jobs – SANIBEL-CAPTIVA


REFUGE/DDWS Olivia Hogan is fulfilling an educational internship focused on applying Florida-standard lesson plans to students in the great outdoors.

Education intern Olivia Hogan recently arrived to the JN . to assist “Thing” Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel with staff shortages this season, thanks to funding from the “Thing” Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge.

Hogan graduated from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg in May with a major in marine science (biology concentration) and a minor in coastal management. The Frederick, Maryland native completed a summer internship at the Cape May Whale Watch and Research Center in New Jersey before arriving in Sanibel.

At the refuge, she will assist the wildlife education team with program development and delivery to local students and visitors through May. She is most looking forward to teaching The Sanibel School students, who visit the Wildlife Education Boardwalk monthly for classes in the field.

“I love Sanibel,” said Hogan. “I love working with the ‘Ding’ Darling team, exploring Wildlife Drive and taking the bike paths to the beach.”

“Our interns bring youthful energy, enthusiasm and creativity to the reception team,” Surveillance Refuge Ranger Toni Westland said. “At the same time, the program gives students and recent graduates the opportunity to learn hands-on about the environment and refugee operations. Olivia’s work will help us fulfill a vision of partnering with The Sanibel School, a vision we’ve been mapping for over 10 years.”

For more information about the refuge’s internship program and supporting it, contact DDWS Associate Executive Director Sierra Hoisington at 239-472-1100, ext. 233.
