Intern Abby hits 100 hours, has big future plans

by Valerie Bain, Animal Care Manager

Abby Sweetser started volunteering with us as part of our Animal Care Internship Program in October of 2016 and has already completed the 100 service hours for her high school requirement, yet she continues to give us her Saturday mornings.  She attends Newport Harbor High School & joined us through the Environmental Science Field Studies Department.  Abby & her mom are a Dynamic Duo that also volunteer for Karma Rescue: A non-profit organization that transforms lives and creates second chances with innovative programs that champion at-risk dogs and cats in Los Angeles through rescue, training, fostering and adoption.  When Abby is not attending classes or volunteering her time, she is practicing or competing as a Mid-Fielder for the NHHS Lacrosse Team!  Abby is planning to apply to the Exotic Animal Training and Management Program at Moorpark College upon graduation.  As you will see pictured, her favorite Ambassadors here are our snakes

Abby often makes time for our visitors when caring for animals by showing them to kiddos who are exploring the museum.  She has a heart of gold & is truly one of the most amazing young people I have had the pleasure to work with.
