Interns like Gareth and Jessica (above) are helping to build an understanding of the bottlenose dolphins in Western Port.
They are among nine internships we have hosted so far in 2022 from Monash, Deakin, Melbourne and Federation Universities.
In addition to their survey hours, interns complete other projects to support our education, communication and behaviour-change and IT goals.
We see hosting interns as an important part of DRI’s role to help develop the next generation of scientists.
Leanne, our Research Fellow, was an intern three years ago.
