My introduction to the Wild(life Trust)

Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust

I've been lucky enough to obtain an internship with the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, and I'll be blogging about my 10 week placement here.

I have been lucky to obtain a Santander-sponsored internship at the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and get the opportunity of seeing the ecology I have been studying as part of my Environmental Science degree put into practice.

It is an exciting prospect because, as an Open University student, I have spent most of my last 6 years of study at home in front of books or, more often than not, a computer screen learning the theories behind conservation but rarely getting the chance to talk about wildlife, hence my pronunciation can be a little suspect at times, let alone getting my hands dirty with the experts.

It quickly became apparent that I was not going to be able to experience the full extent of the activities that the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust perform

Following the introductions to the welcoming people at Banovallum House, it quickly became apparent that I was not going to be able to experience the full extent of the activities that Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust perform in the 10 week placement, as they were too numerous and varied, but I will try and experience as many as I can and capture the flavour of some of them in this blog.

P.S It wasn’t my intention to blog about my time at Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, I was just drafting some notes for an article for the quarterly magazine, Lapwings. However, the friendly (but persuasive) Comms team thought that I should step out of my comfort zone and provide a more regular missive.
