“Our intern was able to work in the office as part of the team, and completed all tasks asked of her. Getting to know what we do as a research organisation was important for the student, as she could see how we work, and what is involved when working for a conservation research NGO. She was involved in processing field notes, doing a literature reviews to help with papers, and designing a database.
I had a very positive experience having an intern. We were very happy with the scheme and the intern. “
