World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the world’s leading conservation organization, seeks a U.S. Government Relations Spring 2019 Intern. The U.S. Government Relations Department of the World Wildlife Fund is seeking part-time to full-time interns for policy research, analysis, and outreach. Given the diversity of issues that the USGR staff covers, research and analysis may entail working with legislation, regulations, and (potentially) court cases. By contrast - research, analysis, and support may include assessment of government agencies’ roles, policies, and positions on issues relating to WWF’s mission, or writing of brief materials about U.S. government agencies. Outreach may entail covering congressional hearings and markups, preparing and attending congressional, administration, and/or NGO coalition briefings. Subject matter will cover many of the issues in which WWF is involved, including biodiversity conservation (e.g., endangered species and habitat protection), natural resource management (e.g., fisheries, forestry, and agriculture), environment and security, climate change, and energy.
Only enrolled students are eligible for this internship as you must be able to receive academic credit from your current academic institution.
