Reece, who grew up in Cambridge City, Ind., is currently attending Indiana State University and is entering her junior year. She is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in marketing with a minor in sustainability. Once graduating, Reece hopes to work as a marketing manager in a field geared toward educating others about the environment.
The Conservation Education & Marketing Internship is a six-month program designed for those interested in pursuing careers in environmental conservation, communication or other related fields. Interns learn about CROW on an organizational level and apply the information through public speaking engagements and outreach events. They also learn about the impact of communication through social media outlets and community partnerships with local newspaper and media companies.
“I’m hoping to gain more knowledge about the wildlife on Sanibel and to help educate others on the importance of how their actions can affect wildlife,” says Reece. “I also hope to learn more about helping to market for nonprofit organizations.”
Reece will be assisting with presentations, leading tours of CROW’s hospital, and engaging with visitors to the Education Center and events. She will also be helping develop content for CROW’s social media pages, website, advertisements and exhibits in the Education Center.
