Intern Kristina Gjergjaj in a kayak

Hello everyone! I'm Kristina Gjergjaj but everyone calls me Tina. This upcoming fall I will be a junior studying Environmental Conservation and Sustainability at the University of New Hampshire. Sophomore year flew by at UNH but I am excited for the opportunity to work with Alyson Eberhardt and Caitlin Mandeville as the summer 2018 Coastal Resilience Intern for UNH Cooperative Extension and NH Sea Grant. For the next couple of weeks I will be taking part in numerous projects including beach profiling, sand dune restoration, glass eel monitoring then creating reports and summarizing the data that was gathered. I am thrilled to be joining a team of like minded individuals and making a difference. READ MORE FROM TINA'S INTRODUCTORY BLOG POST



Intern Robert Lafreniere working in a marsh

Hello! I am Robert Lafreniere, a soon to be senior at the University of New Hampshire. Throughout the next couple months I will be working with NH Sea Grant/UNH Cooperative Extension as one of the 2018 Doyle Fellows. My main area of focus will be on dune restoration by monitoring the success of dunes which were planted in prior years. I have been a member of the UNH Coastal Habitat Restoration Team for over a year prior to starting this fellowship and look forward to continuing my restoration work. My own first hand accounts of the changes taking place along our coastline have helped fuel my interest in restoring and managing these fragile ecosystems.
