Interns with a passion for environmental conservation have the unique opportunity to join a remote internship. Remote interns have the opportunity to work on priority projects related to key environmental protection issues, gaining exposure to real-world application of the use of environmental law. Projects are varied and assigned according to experience and interest.
Remote interns can expect to assist with writing reports, preparation of legal documents and writing content for websites aiming to raise public awareness. This material will be used to combat environmental crimes or develop management and conservation strategies to protect the environment.
Research and legal analysis may include, but is not limited to:
EU fisheries legislation and Illegal, Unregulated and Unreported (IUU) fisheries.
Promoting the enforcement of existing EU and international legislation for the protection of protected habitats (eg. Seagrass meadows and coralligenous reefs)
Combating the illegal trade of endangered plants and animals
Combating environmental crimes, pollution incidents and the destruction of natural habitats and wildlife.
Shipping, ship traffic and maritime accidents.
Uncontrolled use of live ammunition by the armed forces posing threats to public health and wildlife.
Development of management schemes for fisheries protected areas.
Note that remote internships can be coupled by data collection on site, which interns can pick up at a future date, if they later wish to intern abroad with their placement.
At least one year of relevant college/university study in biology, environmental sciences, sustainability, or a related field.
High School Students aged 16+ may be accepted, depending on the strength of their application.

This covers the cost of an assigned supervisor who will work with the participant to develop an internship plan and schedule, which may vary depending on the needs of the student, as well as support throughout the project. Remote internships are designed to include as much as possible the use of real-time transmission of video from underwater cameras and drones that are used for the purposes of our surveys, with the aim to engage and inspire interns in marine conservation issues, even though they may not be able to join us on-site this summer.
