We are pleased to offer a unique summer internship in 2015. The internship is designed to provide a future conservation leader the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of environmental and natural resource issues and protection in Wyoming. The Conservation Intern will also learn about environmental advocacy, and the ways in which the Outdoor Council seeks to effect change and achieve its mission of protecting Wyoming’s environment and quality of life for future generations.
We are accepting proposals for projects that would be relevant to our work and meaningful to the applicant. These research projects could culminate in GIS mapping, a short video documentary, a legal or policy research paper, or other work products. We encourage creativity. Applicants should review the Wyoming Outdoor Council’s scope of work, which can be found on our website.
In addition to this focused work, the Conservation Intern will work alongside multiple staff members who engage in a variety of issues such as oil and gas leasing and development, federal land-use planning, policies for sagebrush ecosystems and sensitive species such as sage-grouse, air and water quality protection, and initiatives to address climate change. The intern will become knowledgeable about substantive environmental issues in Wyoming and will also gain insight into the workings of a nonprofit conservation organization.
