Topics for internships may be in the areas of wildlife biology, wildlife conservation, environmental education, or management. We also accept internships in a variety of technical areas which may be utilized in our work (e.g. computers, public relations, law, agriculture, etc.). Each intern will be expect to communicate adequately in Spanish, and to have the physical capacity, skills and facilities to accomplish his/her respective project. We will work with the potential intern to craft a project to ensure that it is appropriate to the objectives of the intern and program, fits the skills and tools available so that success is achievable, and is pertinent to nature conservation in Nicaragua.
