About Wildlife Society

For over 70 years, the Wildlife Society has been an international, nonprofit scientific and educational association working to preserve wildlife with science and education. Society members try to improve wildlife professionals' ability to conserve diversity, sustain productivity and ensure responsible use of wildlife resources. Current society issues include climate change and budgets for federal land management and research agencies.

Interns tasks include researching conservation issues, preparing background information for testimony or comments, writing for and assisting with the preparation of society publications and attending hearings. Actual activities depend upon the skills and interests of each intern, as well as the society's need. Interns also get first-hand experience with the Congressional and administrative processes, and networking opportunities with professionals.

Eligibility

Open to college students, recent college graduates and grad students. Degrees in wildlife biology/management or other natural resource scientific disciplines are preferred.
