I would like to take the opportunity to welcome all of the 2012 PRIME interns and introduce the two interns at Western Washington University's Shannon Point Marine Center (SPMC) in Anacortes, WA. Kailey Gabrian-Voorhees will be working with Dr. Paul Dinnel on native oyster restoration in Puget Sound. She comes to us from Whatcom Community College and will be attending Western Washington University in the fall. Forrest Callaghan is working with Dr. Jude Apple (hey, that's me!) and will be investigating the effect of climate change and ocean acidification on plankton communities in the Salish Sea. Forrest is pursuing a degree in Native Environmental Science at Northwest Indian College.
Our happy PRIME interns are pictured below.
I look forward to hearing from everyone and reading your posts over the course of the summer. Best of luck with your projects.
