Arid Recovery offers internships for recent graduates looking to deepen their practical experience in ecology and conservation. This is an opportunity to work with a small team to gain hands-on experience in the spectrum of land management, ecology, research and communications necessary to advance conservation programs.
The intern will assist staff in day-to-day operation of Arid Recovery. At various times you will be working with and supervised by the Field Ecologist and Community Coordinator, Field and Maintenance Officer, Ecologist, and General Manager. You will do a diverse range of tasks including:
collection and collation of ecological monitoring data (including vegetation survey, track transects and vertebrate trapping);
community engagement through tours, events, market days and school visits;
written communications and fundraising;
administrative and housekeeping tasks;
fence and infrastructure maintenance and feral animal control; and
opportunities to undertake independent research.
