Schwecke interns in Costa Rica

by Maggie Buettner
Weston Schwecke of Gibbon is currently a Junior at the University of Minnesota studying Animal Science with a minor in Captive Wildlife Care and Handling. This summer he spent ten weeks in Costa Rica as a Wildlife Biologist Intern. The first eight weeks he was at Wild Sun Rescue in Cabuya where the internship took place. He stayed on the main site in Cabuya which had a bunk house for the interns and volunteers. It consisted of a few bunk beds and a couple of dressers. Weston added “there was no AC but a few fans to keep you cool at night. I would also occasionally sleep outside in a hammock out on the yoga deck.”
