We have two new internship opportunities available for students enrolled at Colorado State University. The Colorado Natural Heritage Program is housed within the Warner College of Natural Resource’s Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology and as such, we are usually able to host a number of internships every year.
Conservation Outreach Internship – The needs for raising awareness of conserving Colorado’s biodiversity resources have never been greater. This internship, made possible by the Warner Minigrant from the Warner College of Natural Resources, represents a rare and important opportunity for CNHP to move forward in promoting its mission and resources while providing an opportunity for an intern to assist with this effort.
The goal of this internship is to raise awareness of CNHP’s role in Colorado and promote CNHP’s mission to connect science and conservation. This will include proactive steps towards making key people more aware of Colorado’s biodiversity conservation challenges, and raising awareness of the resources CNHP can offer to address these challenges. Forming additional ties within CSU to promote collaboration between students, faculty, researchers, and institutional leadership is another goal that CNHP hopes to advance through this internship.
This internship is intended to provide a unique opportunity to one or more students that can help enhance their skills in program development and outreach. The intern(s) will work independently much of the time and will be given freedom to develop an outreach program based on their particular interests and strengths as they relate to CNHP’s mission and needs.
Website Development Internship – The continuing development of CNHP’s website is critical to our ability to continue to meet the needs of Colorado’s conservation community. This internship, made possible by funds through the Warner Minigrant, represents a unique opportunity to make continued improvements to our site.
This internship is intended to provide a unique opportunity to one or more students that can help enhance their skills in website development. The intern(s) will work independently much of the time. The internship will begin with identifying a discrete website upgrade that the intern will implement from start to finish between August and December, 2010.
More information about both internship opportunities and how to apply can be found here. Closing date to apply is August 20, 2010.
