Environmental internships are among the most important placements that travellers can take up when they go abroad. Global environmental issues such as climate change, conservation, overpopulation, water and air pollution and more are damaging jungles, rainforests, coral reefs, animal populations, and communities all over the world. Environmental internships are an opportunity for travellers to give something back, as well as being an important step on the road to a career in environmental work.
There are plenty of opportunities available: environmental work experience might involve learning about the eco-development of a remote village in South America or shadowing professional safari guides and rangers in South Africa. Conservation internships might see you working to safeguard the habitat of tortoises on the Galapagos Islands, tackling climate change in Costa Rica, or protecting dolphins off the coast of Western Australia. In so doing you’ll not only perform important work, but also learn from professionals, gain unparalleled insight and experience, and see some of the world’s most incredible destinations.
