SCCF Welcomes Wildlife Biologist Intern

February 3, 2023

The Wildlife & Habitat Management Department recently welcomed Cody Weber as its new Wildlife Biologist Intern.

A native Floridian, Cody has always had a deep passion for wildlife. After pursuing management roles at Publix for several years, he switched gears and pursued a degree in biology at Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW). As a student he has gained experience tracking Florida box turtles (Terrapene bauri), surveying diamondback terrapins (Malaclemys terrapin), and publishing a geographic distribution note on variable helmeted turtles (Pelomedusa variabilis) in Florida.

Cody’s currently working with FSW Professor Jordan Donini to track three-striped mud turtles (Kinosternon baurii). At SCCF he will assist Wildlife & Habitat Management staff with wildlife tracking, monitoring, habitat surveys, and data entry and management. Outside of work and school, Cody tends to his pet reptiles and two dogs with his fiancé.

“I’m really excited to be a part of the SCCF team and look forward to learning everything I can here,” he said.
