Magellan Project Description
For my summer internship, I worked as an animal care intern at The Oglebay Good Zoo for about 10 weeks. I had close personal contact with all of the animals in the zoo and helped feed, clean, and manage them. The majority of my time was enriching, which is stimulating the brain, of the animals in order to simulate their natural environments.

How will your Magellan Project help with your plans after graduation?
This internship not only provided me with a new mentor, but it increased my knowledge and love for the care of animals necessary for applying to veterinary school.
