I had a wonderful time with my last Internship at Marais des Cygnes National Wildlife Refuge in Kansas. So much fun I have started a new year long internship at Aransas National Wildlife Refuge in Texas. Both internships are a biology intern potion. I have gained many references and certifications to help my career take off. The biggest addition to my resume is how I have become A Wildland Fire fighter type 2 qualified with my redcard. So stoked to have joined The Sca.See More

Sibley Guide to Trees

Aloha Everyone,I came across a great field book on trees. Its called the " Sibley Guide to Trees". It has helped me with my research studies on the GoZero carbon sequestration plots here at Marais des Cygnes NWR in Kansas. I am not from the area and have not seen many of the trees here in my life. To be able to grab my book and narrow down to the exact species of tree I am looking at within…See More

Background checks-

I have encountered a small bump in the road for my next internship.Anyone out there have a clue of what is going on? I have been informed my previous background check may have been compromised. Not something to be excited about, lol.I am starting another internship in a couple months and have been instructed to do all the paperwork again for some reason. Yes it is a new internship, but it literally has a weekend (2 days) between start times.  So it really makes no sense especially with my…See More

Bio

 

     Christopher Nova Smith was born in Bad Kreuznach, Germany. I moved to Hawai’i in 2011, and became the owner/ creative director of a Honolulu based company, RebelutionStudios, in 2013. I’m not interested in just a picture; there is a difference between photographs “of something” and “about something”. I like to think both my photographs and videography are about something. Humor, compassion, experiences, and curiosity is what I hope you feel and see in my photographs. I specialize in environmental documentary photographs, both locally and abroad. My research and photographs have been featured in articles across the country.

Accomplishments:

• One of Hawaii's Top 30 Photographers (Honolulu Magazine, 2015)
• Published in 6 magazines for Photography and Environmental interpretation
• Wrote 15 interpretive scientific research publications ranging from Wildlife Management, Natural Resources, and Sustainability

Education:

Bachelors of Science in Business, Environmental Sustainability- 2014
Bachelors of Science in Environmental Science- expected 2016
Masters of Business Administration, Energy Management- expected 2016

Getting the most of it

Posted on February 18, 2015 at 3:00am 0 Comments

So what are some of the ways we can make the most of our experience?

I know most of the SCA internships do offer training. I my case it will be nice to learn other things. I have spent the last 5 years in three different degree programs. I obtained my Bachelors of Science in Business with a concentration in Environmental Sustainability. I am now a junior in a Bachelors of Science in Environmental Science with a concentration in Biological Science while also starting…
