JACK PIMBLOTT
British

Biology Internship in Auckland,
New Zealand
         

Jack’s internship was a University Research Internship which took place partly in the office and partly out in the field in two sites, in the Bay of Islands and on an Island in the Hauraki Gulf (Ponui)

1) What experience do you feel you are gaining?

- I feel that I am gaining a large diversity of skills, both working in a lab as well as working in the field for a fortnightly period both allowed me to get a glimpse into the work that I plan to step into.

2) What is the best thing about your placement so far?

- So far it's the fact that I have met people who know what they are doing, as well as seeing a country that is beautiful to work in, even if the lack of an ozone does mean sunburn is a hazard, haha.

3) Would you recommend this placement to anyone else?

- I would definitely recommend this to other biology/zoology students or people who have gained their degrees in those areas.

4) What type of person do you think this placement would suit?

- Someone who is willing to try multiple things, as well as a person who is willing to do a level of independent organising for travel while within the country.

5) Can you describe a typical day?

- While on the island, it was a case of wake up, shower, go over sound recording data, go out into the bush to locate birds with tracking devices, return home, go over data again, dinner, sleep.

- While doing lab work, wake up, breakfast, head into the university, go over the dropping samples we have, lunch, go over it again, home.
