Great Hollow Welcomes its Summer Interns

Meet our Summer Research Interns

Great Hollow is happy to welcome our 2017 Summer Research Interns, Brittany Harry and John Correia.  We received over 100 applications from all over the country for this summer’s positions and selected these two bright and talented aspiring biologists. John hails from right here in Connecticut and is passionate about birds, while Brittany comes to us from Alabama and is primarily interested in butterflies/moths and insect-plant relationships. Brittany just graduated from Auburn University this spring with a major in Agronomy and minor in Entomology, and John just graduated from Central Connecticut State University with a major in Biology. They will be assisting with all of our ongoing research projects involving songbirds, invasive plants, insects, turtles, and bats, while also conducting independent projects of their own. Our internship program is at the core of our mission at Great Hollow. We offer these paid positions to provide a unique opportunity for college students and young professionals to get hands-on experience conducting directed research in the fields of ecology and conservation biology.
