while I worked as a wildlife intern with Redwood National Park I had a great amount of ownership over my work. For awhile it was all just a learning experience but once I got the hang of it I basically did everything myself with little guidance. The NPS staff are all amazing and very helpful and would answer in questions I had. Also don't be scared to apply to a wildlife internship if you aren't a wildlife major. I'm not a wildlife major but still got the opportunity to be exposed to something new and it was amazing.
