New England Herpetological Society

The New England Herpetological Society (Herp Society) is a group of reptile and amphibian enthusiasts who make their home at New England Wildlife Center.  The Herp Society is the major herpetology group in the state.  Each month they sponsor a public lectures about reptiles and amphibians.  Twice a year they run an exposition showcasing many different species of invertebrates, reptiles and amphibians.  It’s a great biology education and it all happens here at New England Wildlife Center.

    Hi my name is Chelsea Booker, I am currently an undergraduate student at Mount Holyoke College, and I am very interested in exotic and wild animals (my all time favorite group of animals are reptiles though). I was actually thinking about becoming a behavioral scientist, focusing on the study of animals rather than people (I’m currently majoring in Bio and minoring in Psych). After my undergraduate studies I was thinking about getting my masters in behavioral science. Well, to get to my point, I was wondering if you all think the internship at the wildlife center would be a great start? I’m going to need all the experience I can get.

      Hi Chelsea, Absolutely. Take a look at the information and application about our undergraduate internship program on this site. We have a number of Mount Holyoke alum who have interned at the Center. You should get your application in soon because Dr. Adamski is just starting the review and interview process. Hope to see you soon. :)
