The Kellogg Bird Sanctuary has some new faces around this summer! We are privileged to host two interns for 11 weeks that are gaining working experience for their future careers. Come out and say hi or visit them at the Undergraduate Summer Symposium.
Hello my name is Olivia Lefere, I am the new Avian Care intern for this summer at Kellogg Bird Sanctuary. Next fall I am going to be a junior at Michigan State University. My degree is Zoology/Pre-Veterinarian in hopes to one day become a companion animal veterinarian. I am happy to have found this internship because it is a great way to get a diverse background in animal care and learn great husbandry skills. The past few weeks I have learned a great deal about the birds in all corners of the sanctuary and I would love to talk to guests about them. Hope to see you soon at the sanctuary!

I plan to attend law school after graduating focusing in environmental law. At the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary my internship has focused on creating lesson plans for science education and assisting in giving science-based tours for youngin’s.
