Conservation and Environmental Policy Opportunities for Students

Two potential opportunities for STEPPS students.

First, for students interested in international conservation research, come to the Case Hall Library on Thursday, October 13th at 3:00 pm to hear Dr. Justin Hines talk about opportunities with Operation Wallacea (www.opwall.com). According to their website…

Operation Wallacea is a network of academics from European and North American universities, who design and implement biodiversity and conservation management research programmes. Research is supported by students who join the programme, to strengthen their CV or resume, gain course credit, or collect data for a dissertation or thesis.

Operation Wallacea will be giving a presentation about opportunities available for students next summer. Choice of location includes the cloud forests and coral reefs of Honduras, the lush tropical rainforest and immense coral reefs of Indonesia, the rivers and estuaries of the Peruvian Amazon, the bush of northeastern South Africa, the desert & coral reefs of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, the coral reefs of Cuba, and Mexico.

Second, consider applying for a fellowship with C2C (http://www.bard.edu/cep/c2c/). According to their web site…

C2C Fellows is a national network for undergraduates and recent graduates aspiring to sustainability leadership in politics and business.

C2C Fellows will engage 300 students each year in intensive leadership training. We will challenge young people to consider: What skills and experiences are needed to become people of power, people with the ability to affect the future, within five to ten years? C2C will then support the Fellows to gain these skills.
