The Whale Museum

Soundwatch Intern

May - August 2019 • Friday Harbor, WA

What I liked

The other interns, coordinator, and drivers made it so great. The amount of on the water experience is hard to get anywhere else, and the data collection is a great way to practice field data collection and then using Excel in the office. Friday Harbor is such a cute town to live to make it even better!

What I wish was different

The first few days I was unprepared for how cold it was, but luckily there are places in town to buy warmer clothes if necessary. The days on the boat were long but I loved it.
