Whale, Hello There! From new communications intern Hannah

Hey there!

My name is Hannah Uebele, and I am so excited to work as a Communications Intern at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay.

I am a rising Senior at Tufts University, double majoring in Environmental Science and English. I’m passionate about uniting science and the humanities, and am motivated to work in the world of science journalism. I believe in the importance and potential that effective science communication can have in informing and engaging legislators, scientists, and the general public.

My role as a Communications Intern at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay applies directly to my interests, as I’ll be able to help spread the news about the incredible work that this organization does to ensure that all the region's residents have access to a clean and vibrant waterfront.

In previous summers I’ve worked in places which have increased my interest in sustainability and conservation. I’ve learned sustainable practices in managing and expanding a chili pepper microfarm on Cape Cod, and I’ve worked across my home state of Delaware in its state parks, protecting the land and shores.

I’ve grown up with the wonderful beaches of Delaware as my backyard, and have fallen in love with the Boston Harbor over the last three years, as I’ve become a Bostonian. I hope to help strengthen Save the Harbor/Save the Bay’s ability to connect with the public, so that people continue to be invested and excited by the important conservation work being done.

Working at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay gives me the opportunity to help the public learn and connect with this vital marine environment, and I couldn’t be more excited to dive right in!
