Cape Fear River Watch Internship Programme, USA


Summer, Fall


You should be 20 years old or over, fit, healthy and capable of working in all conditions in a hot climate. No specific skills are needed, but those with previous experience of manual conservation work, trail work, gardening, river restoration etc. would be particularly useful, as well as those who are self-motivated, as you will get more out of the project if you are. In addition, those who are either students taking a year out, or who have graduated in the domains of environmental science, or ecology will greatly benefit and will gain lots of relevant field experience. The project will especially appeal to those with an interest in conservation, rivers, canoeing and paddling, surfing and ornithology.
