Carmine Colasurdo recently joined The Land Conservancy as a stewardship intern. Born in Manhattan and raised in Bloomfield, NJ, he graduated from Kean University in 2018 with a BS in environmental biology. It wasn’t until his sophomore year of college that he discovered his love of wildlife and nature. Now he aims to become a successful wildlife conservationist and hopefully travel the world working on wildlife and nature documentaries, bringing our planet’s needs to the attention of others.
Carmine has several quotes that guide him through life, one of them by Coyote Thunder: “Man is the tool of the Creator and of creation. Man can help nature do what would otherwise take many years. Man belongs to the Earth, and Earth belongs to man.” It is with this in mind that Carmine chose to work for The Land Conservancy. He says, “I like knowing that every day I will be making a positive impact, no matter small or big, in healing our planet.”
