The AWC Internship Program offers the opportunity for promising graduate students to gain valuable field experience in conservation research.
Each internship is designed to provide an exciting training program, and to introduce conservation biologists to a variety of sanctuaries with a host of different ecosystems, flora and fauna, field techniques, and conservation issues.
The intern will be mentored by a team of experienced ecologists, who will provide on-going assessment throughout the training program.
At the end of the training program, the intern’s progress will be evaluated, and an assessment report provided.
The internships provide a modest living stipend for the duration of the program, plus travel assistance.
Basic self-contained single accommodation is available on site at each sanctuary location.
We typically offer a total of 11 internships across our network of sanctuaries, which range from 4.5 to 6 months in duration.
Applicants must be an Australian citizen/permanent resident or have a suitable visa that allows participation in this program. A working-holiday visa is not appropriate.
Due to COVID-19, AWC will be imposing relevant border restrictions as per relevant state and territory regulations. Internship placements may be reviewed and changed by AWC as required without or with minimal notice. Candidates are encouraged (but not limited to) to apply for intern placement(s) within their own region.
Applications for our 2021 Internship Program are now closed.
