We would like to welcome some new faces to the PRC’s Intern Team!
Joining us from Chicago, Illinois this Spring is Natalie Park. Natalie currently attends the University of Kentucky. She is a junior and working on earning her degree in Biology. She aspires to some day work for a rescue facility or a zoo. When she isn’t hitting the books, she enjoys hanging out with her friends and going to baseball games. Since starting her internship, she has become especially fond of Zulu chimpanzee because of her sweet personality. Natalie is always yearning to learn more. One of her favorite aspects of the internship is leaning everything she can about the primates. Everyday she observes something new!
Another Spring intern is Elle Beery. Elle is originally from Fort Collins, Colorado. Elle is a freshman at Asbury College and currently earning her degree in Biology. She also plays on the Asbury Women’s soccer team. After college, Elle hopes to one day work in an animal sanctuary. During her free time, she enjoys watching or playing basketball, and spending time with her friends. Zulu’s sweet nature and her love to blow kisses has won over Elle’s heart. Elle’s favorite aspect of the internship is learning all about the monkey and chimps’ unique personalities. The carestaff is also a big part of why Elle loves interning at the PRC because they care so much about the animals and the team.
We are so excited to have both Elle and Natalie on board to represent the PRC as interns this spring!
The 3-month internship is a great opportunity for students to train under experienced carestaff as well as a way to gain valuable skills for those interested in a career in primate husbandry.
