By Plover Intern Parker Kaye
using GIS and other programs, developed web pages and training videos for our Colonial Waterbird program, and worked on grants to help fund projects at SFBBO. It has been great being able to work on so many projects that contribute to producing good science. While I’m sad my time with the waterbird team is coming to an end, I’m excited for my next chapter. I will be staying here at SFBBO as a Snowy Plover intern, assisting the plover team with Snowy Plover and Least Tern monitoring this breeding season.
Parker Kaye was a waterbird intern at SFBBO. He completed his B.S. in Marine Biology at UC Santa Cruz where he also conducted multiple small mammal surveys throughout the greater Bay Area. Through this internship, he developed new skills and knowledge relating to bird and wildlife research and now serves as an intern in the Plover Program.
