Past Intern Projects

Maggie Grundler interned with the Labrador Institute, spending four weeks in the field and seeing much of the coast. The first stage of her internship was spent assisting with a report for the Torngat Secratariat. Next, she assisted a researcher with the Department of Environment and Conservation study native bat populations, monitoring the spread of White Nose Syndrome. Maggie traveled to Rigolet for fish tagging and deployment, working with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to provide information on the routes of the Atlantic salmon. Back at the Labrador Institute, she helped with a study of the native Atlantic salmon population in Lake Melville. "My internship with the Labrador Institute has been an incredible opportunity. I have come to know both the environment and culture in this land with a profound appreciation, though I feel I have barely scratched the surface."
