USDA Wildlife Services

Spring 2021

Position: Data Analysis Intern
Major: Sustainability Studies Senior

The mission of The USDA APHIS Wildlife Services (WS) is to provide Federal leadership and expertise to resolve wildlife conflicts to allow people and wildlife to coexist. In Texas we resolve conflicts with various species on both private and public property which allows the various ecosystems around the state to thrive. I found this internship through family and friend connections. When I began this internship the State Director had a specific project which he assigned to me for the duration of the internship. I was to develop a non-lethal approach to managing livestock and predator relations in Edwards County. This required collection of data through MIS, analysis of data, and creating multiple alternatives to this problem depending on funding, supplies, and time constraints. My favorite thing about this internship was the collaboration with professionals of all different backgrounds and the openness of sharing insight behind this and other projects.
