If you wish to incorporate your work at Pupu Rangi into your university curriculum or if you wish to expand your skills beyond the conservation work, you might be interested in applying for one of our internships.

Conservation Internship

This internship is suited to three types of participants:

  • students that need to complete a practical component as part of their studies
  • those interested in learning to perform a wide range of biodiversity tasks - we cover anything from invertebrates to birds to bats
  • those interested in improving their leadership and planning skills

At the beginning of the internship, each intern will work with their mentor to complete a development plan outlining the skills that they would like to acquire or to improve on. Based on the development plan, a schedule will be agreed on and followed for the rest of the internship. Interns participate in the Volunteer program and in addition receive personalized training and mentoring according to their goals.

We can mentor and teach either technical skills or soft skills such as leadership and team building skills.

An internship position carries more responsibility, requires more commitment, demands much more effort than a volunteer position. However, you will learn more, you will develop extra skills, and you will gain a work experience comparable to that available in the "real world".
