Hello! My name is Bridget McGillivray and this is my first week as a Communications Intern at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay. I am a rising junior at Harvard University and I am from Victoria, British Columbia. I heard about the organization through Harvard, and I am very excited about the opportunity to work here for the summer!
Growing up on Vancouver Island, the ocean and marine wildlife has always been a huge part of my life. I’ve spent countless hours on the water and I truly can’t get enough of it. For the past four summers, I worked at my dad’s whale watching company, Prince of Whales Whale Watching. My experience at the company greatly expanded my knowledge of marina wildlife and my interest in aquatic environments and sea regulations. Not surprisingly, I really love whales! The effort to preserve and protect certain species is very important to me and I hope to become more involved in the near future.
This summer at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay, I will be writing blogs and working with media tools in order to share news and events with the rest of the Greater Boston community. I am really looking forward to spending some time outside too!
