Conservation Internship for Zoo New England: Available now!

From a wonderful ENVS alum, now Grassroots Wildlife Conservation Program Manager at ZNE. Ideal for ENVS89a internship credit: The Conservation Intern will work with Zoo New England’s Grassroots Wildlife Conservation (GWC) program on all aspects of our field conservation projects.

Candidates must have a valid driver’s license and personal vehicle to drive to field sites. The job posting says 24 hours/week, but she realizes that might not be viable for a college student.

Candidates will be reviewed on a rolling basis, so submit early for first consideration.
