 2019 Intern • 2020 Field Technician • 2021 Field Technician

Hello everyone! My name is Emma Pontius and I am originally from Portland,
Maine. I had the wonderful opportunity to be an intern last summer with Sea
Turtle, Inc. and I couldn’t be happier to return as the 2020 Field Technician! I
received my Bachelor’s degree in Marine Science from the University of Maine
where I was a member of the women’s varsity swim team and had the honor of
being captain my senior year. Since graduation I have spent two seasons interning with The Hawaii Island Hawksbill Turtle Recovery Project based in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in addition to my season with Sea Turtle, Inc.
These internships have solidified my passion for conservation working with different sea turtle species. I look forward to working with you all out on the beach this summer, see you soon!
