“Although I had heard the phrase ‘community-based conservation’ before, I do not think I fully understood what it entailed prior to participating in this internship. The most rewarding aspects of this internship was getting to form so many new connections with people, including the locals of Newfoundland and the employees and other interns of QLF.”
– Anna Maritz, Conservation Leadership Program, 2015
“Throughout the summer I have established working and personal relationships with dedicated people around the world. These are the type of people I hope to surround myself with and am excited to see where their paths will take them. My connections through the GLN have already sown the seeds of future professional networking opportunities.”
– Katy Litka, Southeast Asia Conservation Exchange Program, 2015
“This great stewardship and birding experience surely helped me to become a better biologist and I am really proud to now be a part of the QLF family.”
