Internship details

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.

Intern review: Max Schultz - Colorado, USA

"I am a remote intern for a Marine Institute of Conservation, which is based out of Greece. I am assisting with research on dolphin interactions within a pod, using photo identification techniques to analyze which dolphins associate with which other dolphins the most. We will be analyzing the dolphins’ dorsal fins to determine which dolphins are which. The organization I work for does both rehabilitation/conservation as well as independent research. My project is associated with the independent research side and will help the group to better understand the populations of dolphins they are trying to protect. This role will contribute as a good starting experience for my future plans of building a professional career in this field. I am learning a lot about the “behind the scenes” of being a marine scientist, in terms of the actual data collection and analysis, which I am finding increasingly interesting."
