Carney Interns

In keeping with the Secretary of Interior's mandate of ensuring that the biological integrity, diversity, and environmental health of refuge lands are maintained, generous donations by Dr. Ed and Hilda Carney, annually, allow the Friends to support four university interns each year. 

The Carney interns work under the supervision of Refuge biologists on a broad range of wildlife conservation activities and projects including translocation of red-cockaded woodpeckers, endangered eastern flatwood, frosted salamanders, helping restore long leaf pines and surveying and removing invasive plant species. 

The Carney interns, while providing invaluable wildlife conservation service to the Refuge also further their education and gain a head start on their environmental careers.  As one intern aptly put it:  “Each project has been a learning experience that allowed us to gain more knowledge in our field while giving us the opportunity to see cool wildlife we don’t usually see in the classroom.”  We are happy to contribute to the next generation of wildlife conservationists.
