Conservation Management Internships

By doing an internship in conservation management, you can work in an organisation/company/government department which specialises in ecological issues and/or animal observation, research and welfare.

There are different roles within the conservation management area. We want to help you find an internship in the area you are really interested in.

Some of the conservation management tasks in New Zealand may include:

  • Assisting with, developing and exercising surveys.
  • Pest and species monitoring in a reserve.
  • Bio-security checks.
  • Tracking for rodents and mustelids using traps and poisons.
  • Field visits and ecological assessments.
  • Liaising with key organizations and individuals.
  • Organising and managing data.

ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS FOR INTERNS IN WELLINGTON:

Accommodation is not included in the Programme, however, our partners do have accommodation available and you can arrange to use their accommodation while you're there. The details of the accommodation currently on offer are below:

Internships with Accommodation included:
Most interns stay in shared apartments. You'll have your own bedroom and either your own bathroom or a shared bathroom with a small number of people (2-4). You'll also have shared kitchen facilities.

There is also a shared communal area, such as a TV or Pool room. Internet is always available.

Accommodations are centrally located and near public transport.

Internships without Accommodation, i.e. you arrange your own accommodation:
Accommodation forms a major cost of the placements in New Zealand and the accommodation provided above is very, very good. However, you can choose to arrange your own accommodation in order to keep your costs down.

Our investigation has shown hostel accommodation (sharing dormitory rooms) to range from approximately £10 to £16 per night ($13 to $21). Thus a mid-range hostel for a 6-week placement would cost approximately $840 for your accommodation for that period, but would be a total saving of $1,125 over the “With Accommodation” option over the 6-week period. Please note, however, that these costs were correct at time of writing and can increase or fluctuate owing to Exchange Rates fluctuations.

FOOD:
Food is not provided in this programme, but your accommodation will have cooking facilities.
