Tammy Cloutier – Communications and Fundraising Intern
Tammy is an Environmental Studies PhD student at Antioch University New England where she is focusing on human-African painted (or wild) dog interactions. Her children’s book, Painted Dog Pursuit, was recently published in an effort to increase awareness of painted dogs with the proceeds being used to support painted dog research and conservation. She is excited to join S.P.E.C.I.E.S. as a Communications and Fundraising Intern and looks forward to using her passion for carnivores, writing, and education to assist humans and wildlife everywhere.
Sydney Calderon – Educational Development Intern
Sydney is finishing her last semester at Cornell University studying animal science and education. Most of her past work has been bird-focused, particularly on raptors, or birds of prey. Taking the next step from carnivorous birds to carnivorous mammals, Sydney is working to create educational materials to help S.P.E.C.I.E.S. spread its message to the masses and to bring the power of conservation to all levels of the population.
