Remote Externship with a stipend of $500 stipend at National Geographic Society & The Nature Conservancy Marine and Community Conservation , Apply now

The Nature Conservancy and National Geographic Society, two of the most reputable environmental organisations in the world, are partnering to provide this externship.

Water is an essential resource regardless of how far you live from the ocean. Globally, there are increasing risks to marine environments that could have an impact on all people. A sustainable future depends on our ability to comprehend how natural systems are interrelated on a local and global scale.

Although issues like overfishing, offshore drilling, ocean acidification, or the disappearance of coral reefs may seem far away, participants in this externship will learn how to contextualise marine conservation in a local setting. Discover how to make marine concerns pertinent to all communities and how to solve them. Students will investigate professions in marine conservation, engage with scientists and professionals from The Nature Conservancy and The National Geographic Society, perform research, and establish connections with regional conservation groups.

The Encounter
Look through case studies and materials on the problems with modern marine conservation and its fixes, like marine protected zones.
To examine conservation efforts and pinpoint local and regional problems that are pertinent to marine conservation, acquire and utilise primary and secondary research methods.
Find out about links to marine conservation by having conversations with local authorities, environmentalists, and people of the community.
Determine any gaps in regional conservation initiatives that are pertinent to marine conservation, and suggest fixes for any problems you may come across.
Learn how to communicate about marine challenges and how your community can help by developing your written, spoken, and visual storytelling skills.
