Every year, we welcome interns to East Limestone Island for four weeks at a time. These individuals are typically nearing the end of their undergraduate studies, and their focus is often on biology, environmental studies or resource management. Over the course of their month on ELI, they are trained in a variety of research methods, and they learn aboutlife on a remote research station. In turn, they become essential members of our team and we couldn't complete all our work without them!
This season, we had two fantastic students join us: Ruby Pyke (UBC) and Terra Hauser (Quest University). Ruby was our first intern to take advantage of the SFU accreditation option, meaning she earned course credit for her time with us. We're VERY excited to share her final report exploring inter-annual variation in growth rates of Cassin's Aucklet Chicks on ELI.
