Hello everyone! My name is Elijah Ward and I graduated from Ursinus College with a bachelor’s degree in biology and a minor in education. My hometown is located in New York state, and I plan to one day go and obtain a master’s degree to become a zoologist that travels the world helping endangered species of both marine and terrestrial animals. I am currently working on the US West Coast project assisting with the update of blue whales using photo identification techniques. I also assist with analyzing acoustic data to help identify dolphin clicks and whistles. In the future I hope to continue doing work similar to this style and I’m excited to see what possible skills and networking I could obtain from this internship!
