Creating a safer environment for seabirds on Príncipe island

Yanik Mendes

This internship will introduce Yanik to the field of conservation, by giving her the opportunity to participate in data collection and processing and coordination of relevant seabird-related projects on Príncipe island. This will allow Yanik to gain specific skills pertaining to field work, data management, report writing, budgeting, stakeholder involvement and communications. All the activities carried out by Yanik will form part of ongoing and/or new projects related to seabirds at Fundação Príncipe. This will allow her to get exposure working with a variety of species and gain experience in a wide range of fieldwork activities.
