Interns with a passion for environmental conservation have the unique opportunity to join a remote internship for an Institute of Marine Conservation, a highly respected non-profit NGO. Remote interns have the opportunity to work on priority projects related to key environmental protection issues, gaining exposure to real-world application of the use of environmental law. Projects are varied and assigned according to experience and interest.
Remote interns can expect to assist with writing reports, preparation of legal documents and writing content for websites aiming to raise public awareness. This material will be used to combat environmental crimes or develop management and conservation strategies to protect the environment. Research and legal analysis may include, but is not limited to:
- 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 (eg. Seagrass meadows and coralligenous reefs)
- Combating the illegal trade of endangered plants and animals
- Combating environmental crimes, pollution incidents and the destruction of natural habitats and wildlife.
- Shipping, ship traffic and maritime accidents.
