Training future scientists, conservationists and educators is part of our Training the Next Generation initiative. Our intern training program provides real-world experience and equips interns with the skills, tools and strategies to tackle the challenges of climate change and conservation throughout their careers. Our internship program is an excellent compliment to academic learning, which often does not provide field experiences and applied conservation science opportunities for students.
Since 1965, our intern training program has had a global influence, having prepared over 1,400 interns from over 22 countries for careers in academic research, applied conservation, natural resource management, education, data analysis and beyond, with approximately 80% of intern alumni developing careers these fields. In fact, the majority of Point Blue’s leadership staff and current biologists began as interns!
