“My internship has been transformational. I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect when I got off the pier in Thong Sala, but after a day I recognized the unique opportunity provided here in the sleepy fishing village of Chaloklum. They offers interns the opportunity to experience marine biology by immediate application in the field, while still incorporating the fundamental theory necessary to be an effective conservationist.
Everyone at the station is unbelievably supportive and oriented towards making interns self sufficient from the first day. It’s invigorating to be surrounded by the tight-knit Core community, which is united around a common goal: helping the Gulf of Thailand. I can feel myself becoming more confident in and out of the water with each passing day. Suffice to say I’ll be taking home a lot more than just my hoodie when I leave.”
