Jennifer Vose

Jennifer Vose works for the Marine Environmental Research Institute in Blue Hill, Maine in the summer as a naturalist. Most of her work involves taking people out on the ocean, hauling up lobster traps, talking about the ecology of the area, the habitat of the area and looking at the species they catch in the traps. Based on the species caught, she will explain its anatomy, its life cycle, and its importance to the fishing industry. A main purpose of these trips is to teach people about local ecology.
