Remote NGO Support for Marine Conservation internships are offered through a local Marine Conservation non profit organization. The primary goals of the organization are focused on protecting the local marine environment, involving the community and providing ongoing educational support in regard to these important themes. Interns are supported in their remote internship by experienced local conservationists which include qualified biologists, wildlife conservationists, and oceanographers.
Interns have broad scope to make a difference in the field of marine conservation, while also gaining insight into operations and sustainability principles. While every remote internship is different, day-to-day internship tasks can involve a range of activities related to content creation, research, development strategies, awareness campaigns, document translation (if you have Spanish language skills) and more.
If interested, there is an opportunity for interns to also incorporate tasks related to environmental education, such as workshops and presentation creation. Proactive interns with an interest in business and marketing strategy, corporate social responsibility, and passion for sustainable practice, have ample opportunity to expand their experience and skill sets.
