The hunt is on for Conservation Leadership Programme interns at NACSO. The internship programme runs for two years, giving a solid grounding in Namibian community based conservation. Previous interns – see picture – are now working on climate change adaption in Berlin, studying at Cambridge University, running a multi-faceted conservation programme in the north of Namibia, and more.
We are looking for Namibian graduates with a strong interest in conservation, excellent written and interpersonal skills, and a good head for figures. Much of our work is advocacy and communication.
Current interns are engaged with the Natural Resources Working Group, monitoring wildlife and conservancy management, and with the Business and Enterprise Working Group, compiling and assessing the data for the prestigious State of Community Conservation Report.
If you are accepted onto the programme you will work with a highly professional conservation team which will provide mentoring and support. Some of the work experience is field-based, so you will be expected to travel and camp in the bush.
To apply for the internships running from March 2018 to March 2020, please send a CV with academic qualifications and a covering letter stating why you wish to work in Namibian conservation, and what skills and motivating interests you can bring to the programme.
