Internship: Freshwater Conservation Research - Invertebrate Communities in Restored Wetlands
Season: Fall 2022 (Approx Oct-Dec)
Application Deadline: Monday August 22 at 9am CST
Invasive plants can dramatically alter wetlands and negatively affect the species that rely on these sensitive habitats. Shedd Aquarium is working with community volunteers and local partners to remove invasive vegetation from around wetlands in the Forest Preserves of Cook County. This restoration work falls under Shedd’s Conservation Priority Area to Revitalize Habitat.
As part of the Conservation Research Department, the intern will work closely with the Wetland Biologist to document the wildlife that use these habitats and monitor species abundances in response to restoration efforts; special focus is given to amphibians and aquatic invertebrates. These efforts will help us understand how removing invasive buckthorn and restoring temporary wetlands can benefit aquatic animals. This research also will help inform management strategies to best protect wetlands.
