Our Wildlife Protection department combats cruelty to wild animals, both captive and free-living, through education, outreach, and advocacy. We have an opportunity for interns (click to view position description) to learn about state and federal wildlife policy, and the animal protection and environmental protection fields. Interns will develop their research, drafting, community outreach and lobbying skills while networking with fellow animal and wildlife protection advocates. This is a unique opportunity to work with some of the nation's leaders in the wildlife protection field.
Responsibilities and projects include:
- Read wildlife-related media and educational materials
- Research, compile and draft campaign materials
- Assist with outreach related to wildlife protection issues
Interns are expected to commit to 16-30 hours per week for 10-12 weeks; a reduced schedule would be considered. Interns may arrange to receive course credit. A commuting stipend corresponding to number of days worked (maximum $50/week) is available.
Interns must pass a criminal background check and sign a waiver and release of liability. The position is located in our Gaithersburg, Md., office.
