Meet the Summer Interns

The Dewees Conservancy Interns have been immersing themselves in invasive species removal, native flora and fauna and barrier island ecology during their time on the island.  I have enjoyed  getting to know and working with them this summer. They have brought with them energy and passion which is a wonderful asset to our community!  I hope you have the chance to meet them this summer.  Please mark your calendars for their farewell presentation on Tuesday, August 10th to highlight their summer intern experience. 

Laura Caudill – Naturalist & Sea Turtle Intern

Hi! I am from Indianapolis, and I currently attend Murray State University. In December, I will be graduating with a degree in Wildlife Biology and Conservation. After graduation, I will either be attending graduate school to obtain a Master’s in Outdoor Education, or I will find a job in my field. In my spare time, I am a beekeeper and barista at a local coffee shop. My hobbies include reading, photography, and hiking. So far, my favorite things about working on Dewees are the beautiful sunsets/sunrises and all the unique birds! I look forward to spending the rest of my summer here!

Meghan Teumer – Naturalist & Sea Turtle Intern

Hi, my name is Meghan. Originally from Northwest Indiana, I recently graduated from the University of South Carolina with a B.S. in Environmental Science. I’m so excited to be spending my summer working on conservation efforts and to continue to establish experience in the field. After Dewees, I plan to attend graduate school to pursue a degree in natural resource management.

Abby Wiseman – Naturalist & Coyote Intern

Hi everyone! My name is Abby Wiseman and I am serving as the coyote intern this year. I’m currently studying Biology at Berry College and am entering my senior year. I live in Aiken, SC with my parents and twin sister. As fun as Aiken is, I am beyond excited to be here this summer learning about your coyote population! This island brings such a unique perspective, and I can’t wait to see just how incredible the wildlife and people are!
