Company/Organization: Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge

Description:

Wednesdays through Sundays, May 21 through September 1. Outreach intern will be stationed on the beach at the edge of a designated Wilderness area on Long Beach Island, NJ to greet visitors and promote a greater understanding of the Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and the importance of its Holgate Unit.
As one of New Jersey’s last undeveloped barrier beaches, Holgate is an important and productive area for beach-nesting birds—including three New Jersey State-endangered beach- nesting bird species: the least tern, black skimmer, and the piping plover.
Intern will provide interpretation and information to promote visitor activities, public stewardship of the refuge’s biodiversity and foster support of wilderness lands and endangered species. Intern will also prepare and present interpretive walks and environmental education activities. One day a week, intern will help wildlife biologists with projects such as Saltmarsh inventory and Canada goose banding.

Qualifications:

A Junior, Senior, recent graduate, or graduate student with background in environmental education, interpretation, public affairs, environmental studies or natural resources is desirable. In your resume, be sure to highlight your knowledge of natural history as well as your birding, computer, and public speaking skills. Ability to tolerate the sun, heat, biting bugs, and humidity is a plus.
