SEAS Internship 2012

We’ve just completed the first week of the 2012 SEAS (Supporting Emerging Aboriginal Stewards) Community Initiative Conservation Internship program. Qqs Projects Society and Pacific Wild are collaborating to host an 8-week long program to give six youth from Bella Bella hands-on experience in ecology and natural resource management. The interns are working alongside Qqs Projects Society’s Coastwatch field crew and researchers from Simon Fraser University to perform stream and juvenile salmonid assessments, conduct crab surveys, and carry out other research projects in the Koeye watershed. The crew will be posting updates about their experiences as they return to Bella Bella each weekend.

    Hey Interns

    I am looking at your blog in a cabin in the hot Shuswap, and I am just a little jealous. Sounds like you are doing some very interesting work, and could someone please help William out of that wet-suit!
    Keep up the great work and stay safe. We will be kayaking around Goose Island in the August 6th week. Maybe we will bump into each other.
