What I liked
I really loved getting to gain holistic, hands-on experience in the field. I got to apply ecological work and knowledge to real-life situations. This experienced not only gave me a foundation in ecological research skills, but also opened my perspective to a One Health approach. The ICM team was also very friendly and helpful, but allowed you to grow and improve, working individually and as a team. The best part for me was getting to collect data in the field and handle aquatic and box turtles.
