Help Us Equip the 2021 Interns

We need to equip our incoming Summer interns for the Diamondback Terrapin season with scientific instruments, PPE, and clothing to use while doing fieldwork. Every year we have to replace or replenish equipment. This year we also need to make fresh short & long sleeved T-shirts for wearing in the field.*

* Custom printed NECWA shirts, so that they can be identified as our interns. This is important as terrapins are a threatened species and not just anyone can muck around with them. NECWA has the Commonwealth’s permission to work with these animals
