Carolyn Hunt '05
I worked on raising public awareness about Sears Island and the proposed liquified natural gas port. I made maps using GIS and led tours of the island. I also organized events to educate the Sierra Club members about the Bush Administration's air pollution policies, and made fact sheets.It is a rare opportunity that I have been given to take an in-depth look at a political ecology problem while making progress toward the Sierra Club's goal of protecting Sears Island in its natural state for eco-tourism. I learned about the ways that science can influence and guide policy-making decisions. I had a key role in the transition between science and policy, by developing publications and campaigns that incorporate the information from the updated Sears Island's Environmental Impact Statement. Through this internship with the Conservation Board of the Sierra Club of Maine, I completed projects that put my knowledge to the test and helped our community and our local ecology.
