Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) is the largest private (non-profit) owner of land for conservation in Australia, protecting endangered wildlife at 31 sanctuaries in which we own or manage in partnership, covering a total of more than 6.5 million hectares in iconic regions such as the Kimberley, Cape York, the Top End and Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre. With a focus on practical land management, informed by world-class science, AWC is implementing a dynamic new model for conservation.
AWC’s mission - to deliver effective conservation for all native animal species and their habitats - is achieved by:
AWC offers opportunities for promising graduate students to gain valuable field experience in conservation research via its Internship Program. In 2022, AWC will offer nineteen internships, of 4.5 – 6 months duration, across its network of sanctuaries. Each internship has been designed to provide an exciting training program. The program is designed to introduce conservation biologists to a variety of sanctuaries with a host of different ecosystems, flora and fauna, field techniques, and conservation issues. The internships provide a modest living stipend for the duration of the program, plus travel assistance.
*AWC provided accommodation may not be available at some locations. An additional accommodation/travel allowance may be provided to the intern to support other arrangements. This will be discussed further with the successful applicants.
Due to COVID-19, AWC will be imposing relevant border restrictions as per relevant state and territory regulations. Internship placements may be reviewed and changed by AWC as required without or with minimal notice. Candidates are encouraged (but not limited to) to apply for intern placement(s) within their own region.
