About Internships at
Pacific Biodiversity Institute

Pacific Biodiversity Institute's internship program offers exceptional opportunities for people seeking further education and a stepping-stone to employment in conservation or scientific research. We have hosted over 50 interns from around the world for the last 17 years. We provide interns with education and work experience in:

Conservation Biology, Ecology, Wildlife Biology, Botany, Forestry, Mapping and Landscape Analysis (GIS), Aerial-Photo Interpretation and Remote Sensing, Citizen Science Coordination, Outreach, Media Relations, Videography and Photography, Non-profit Organizational Management, Development and Fundraising.

Internships generally run for three-month periods, full-time, although some internships are longer duration. The program is available year-round and is open to post-graduates, graduate students, and some undergraduate students or other interested persons.

Internships may be based out of our field research sites in various locations in North and South America and/or at our offices in Anacortes and Winthrop, Washington, in the heart of the spectacular North Cascade Mountains.

Be sure to check out the current intern brochure, as well as articles from our 2003 Internship Newsletter and Winter 2001 Newsletter, “Expanding Horizons: the Intern Experience” and “The Alien Weeds Project.” These articles were written by interns about their experiences with Pacific Biodiversity Institute.
