After graduating from Beacon College in December 2018, Sweet put his Bachelor of Science degree in anthrozoology to good use as an intern for several marine animal care facilities. His work provides care for aquatic animals that have been in harm’s way and enables those creatures to help people. The best part: Sweet gets to train bottlenose dolphins face-to-face.
He currently works as an animal behaviorist intern for Island Dolphin Care in Key Largo, Fla. In and out of the water, he trains bottlenose dolphins to provide animal-assisted therapeutic and educational programs for kids, adults with special needs, and their families and caregivers.
