It’s always a sad time saying good-bye to the interns who have been a part of our team just after six months, but it’s even harder when they have been a part of the team for four and a half years. Kyle Jorgensen has been a part of Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge’s team since February, 2010, when he first arrived here for his first internship working with the big cats. Kyle is originally from California where he graduated in 2009 with a Zoology degree from Humboldt State University. He completed a total of three consecutive internships here at Turpentine Creek, then in 2011 he was offered a staff position and has been here ever since.
Kyle has played a very versatile position here at Turpentine Creek and we are all saddened that he will be moving on in October to new adventures. A couple of Kyle’s favorite cats are Sammy and Heather, two tigers that live out in our habitats. Kyle has always been available and ready to help out any way he could. All of us here at TCWR want to wish Kyle all the best in his new adventure. We all hope that he will always think of TCWR as his second home and realize that he can come back and visit whenever he wishes to. We’ll miss you Kyle!
