Internship details

Join a highly respected NGO on a virtual environmental law internship in Greece. Get real environmental law experience and help develop conservation strategies by participating remotely from home.

Remote internships in environmental law out of Greece are perfect for those with a passion for environmental conservation. Environmental law internships are based with an Institute of Marine Conservation, a highly respected non-profit NGO with bases around Greece.

Remote interns have the opportunity to work on priority projects related to key environmental protection issues, gaining exposure to real-world application of environmental law. Projects are varied and assigned according to interns’ experience and interest, and can include the following areas:

  • EU fisheries legislation and Illegal, Unregulated and Unreported (IUU) fisheries
  • Promoting the enforcement of existing EU and international legislation for the protection of protected habitats (i.e. seagrass meadows and coralligenous reefs)
  • Illegal trading of endangered plants and animals
  • Environmental crimes, pollution incidents and the destruction of natural habitats and wildlife
  • Shipping, ship traffic and maritime accidents
  • Uncontrolled use of live ammunition by the armed forces posing threats to public health and wildlife
  • Development of management schemes for fisheries protected areas

Virtual environmental law interns can expect to assist NGOs with writing reports, preparing legal documents and writing website content to raise public awareness. This material will be used to combat environmental crimes or develop management and conservation strategies to protect the environment.
