Position Description and Application
The Wildlife Society (TWS) has an opening for a paid wildlife policy intern with an interest in federal natural resource policy issues. This will be a six month appointment running from January-June 2023.
Interns learn how to work cooperatively with TWS members, fellow professional societies, and conservation organizations to push for national-level policies of importance to the profession. Applications will be accepted until November 2. Full application details can be found in the TWS position announcement.
The program is named in honor of one of The Wildlife Society’s first policy interns, Joe Burns. Joe devoted his career to federal service, and spent over 20 years working on behalf of conservation programming within the US Forest Service. Joe was an extremely active proponent of TWS’ policy program, and was selfless in his mentorship of new professionals looking to engage in the profession.
Any questions on the Joe Burns Memorial Wildlife Policy Internship can be directed to Caroline Murphy, AWB®, government relations manager at TWS (email@example.com).
