Some people escape to the coast during the summer months, and Julia Thulander '20 (biology) is one of them—but not because she needed a vacation.
She's spending her summer collecting data on whales through an internship with Blue Ocean Society. As an intern for the marine conservation nonprofit, she observes ocean life from a whale-watching boat off the coasts of Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine. In this video, Thulander observes and records the movements of two humpback whales in an area of the Gulf of Maine known as Jeffreys Ledge.
"After taking this internship in marine biology, I have for sure decided what I want to do with my life and go into this field," she says. "It also gave me a really great opportunity to see the efforts being made to protect these animals."
