Our internships are 6-month unpaid positions that provide valuable hands-on experience working for a community-based conservation-development organization. We also host independent student researchers from universities around the world that carry out targeted research projects. Past research topics of our independent researchers have included: manatee baseline studies, alternative livelihood options for Toledo fishers, dolphin baseline study, and GIS habitat mapping.
