Eva Rodriguez Martinez took some time
off from her studies to travel to Maui from Spain in April 2014 to
learn about Hawaiian sea turtles.
very grateful to Hawaii Wildlife Fund for my internship experience! I
had the best time with an amazing group of very nice and professional
people involved in many projects around the island of Maui. They were
really helpful, teaching me about Hawaiian Sea Turtles, marine debris
and more. I had many varied experiences, and they then tailored my
internship to my interest and study, when possible. My tasks with
them consisted of working with the nesting turtles at night, checking
on the hatchlings and the nest after an emergence, conducting very
beautiful snorkeling transects to identify the sea turtle species,
sorting marines debris, and cleaning up the beach. I truly recommend
to take part in this project due the great time I had in my
internship. Thank you very much HWF. It was so special a time!
