Biological and Wildlife Intern, Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge , Baring, Maine

How Alexandria Moore got involved with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
Alex Moore was selected from a group of applicants to participate in the Career Discovery Internship Program.
Anytime I was able to have close encounters or (safe) contact with wildlife, I would consider those moments the most rewarding parts of my time spent here.
Alexandria Moore's accomplishments
I was able to participate in many aspects of refuge work life, so in many ways my expectations for this internship were exceeded. I would say that I didn’t anticipate the ferocity of some of the insects, but that aside, I’ve been positively blown away by the things I’ve experienced here. Because of the hands-on experience afforded to me by this internship I have better understanding of what my professional goals are.
Alexandria Moore's next steps
Growing up in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in a greener generation than that of my parents, I have been thoroughly influenced and affected by the concepts of sustainability, conservation, and restoration; I have a reverence for this planet and its inhabitants that goes farther and deeper than my words could ever express. I hope to one day play a role, however small, in the ever-challenging effort to save this Earth.
