Alaska Center for Conservation Science in cooperation with partner organizations offers unique internships opportunities that target those with an interest in conservation biology.
Since 2007 ACCS has partnered with the BLM Alaska Field Office (BLM-AFO) to provide internship opportunities through the Chicago Botanic Garden’s Conservation and Land Management (CLM) Internship Program. Each year this program matches recent graduates with conservation and land management agencies across the western United States. Successful interns have prior experience in botany, ecology, or wildlife biology. At ACCS, interns typically contribute to the BLM Seeds of Success initiative, help maintain the UAA Herbarium, and assist with a variety of tasks related to rare and/or invasive plant management. As such, plant identification skills are essential, and experience with GIS or herbarium maintenance is a plus. If you are interested, please apply to through CLM.
Student and Volunteer Opportunities
Opportunities exist for students looking for additional experience and interested members of the public to collaborate with Alaska Center for Conservation Science. Available opportunities depend on interest and experience. Additionally, student jobs are available for students looking to gain work experience in a conservation-related field.
The UAA Herbarium (UAAH) is always looking for volunteers to assist with curation of specimens. Please contact Justin Fulkerson if you are interested in volunteering.
