Intern at Sea

News & Events

One of the most interesting things senior [b]Kelsey Pinkham[/b] is learning at her summer internship with the New England Coastal Wildlife Alliance is the individual markings and names of whales off the coast of Plymouth, where she travels with a local whale watch. A crowd favorite is Salt, a world-famous humpback.

"Salt is a mother and grandmother, and was the first whale ever named," the Carver resident said during a trip out to sea with Captain John's Whale Watching and Fishing Tours. "We can keep track of her migration from the Caribbean to here. It's really amazing."

During any other summer, Dr. Al-Kailani, a professor of business and marketing, would be in the city with his wife and four children, preparing for the fall semester. Instead, he is 8,000 miles away in the relatively small town of Bridgewater, where he is a visiting lecturer at BSU.
