Volunteer Internships

We offer opportunities for students seeking academic credit or others interested in gaining nonprofit experience and applied, hands-on experience related to one’s studies. Students at all levels (including associates, undergraduates, etc.) studying biology, environmental studies, ecology, policy, marketing and communications, business or another related field are welcome to contact us to pursue a placement. While most of our interns conduct outdoor field projects during the spring and summer, we do offer outdoor placements for the fall and winter months as well as some indoor, office-based placements. 

Current Opportunities

We do not have any current internship opportunities, but we may be able to work with you in tailoring a placement to complement your studies. A few examples of past placements include science research and monitoring, habitat restoration, policy research, outreach, volunteer program coordination and more. Contact mdougherty@tnc.org to learn more about existing or potential internships. 

The Nature Conservancy is not able to offer a stipend for these positions. If you are interested in pursuing paid employment, please visit nature.org/careers.
