Environmental Conservation, Costa Rica - Intern Abroad HQ

Minimum Duration: 2 weeksLanguage Requirement: Basic SpanishDespite it’s small size, 25% of Costa Rica’s territory is environmentally protected, so there is ample opportunity to become involved in conservation efforts. This conservation internship program works toward preserving the fragile ecosystem in protected areas. Activities may include organic gardening, helping to catalogue species of plants and insects, field research, helping to maintain trails, educating the community about ecological practices, and taking care of butterfly farms and medicinal gardens. Suitable participants should be fit, with an interest in wild flora and fauna and sustainability. A background in biology or a related field is desirable but not essential. More importantly, you’ll need a passion for the great outdoors and willingness to get dirty. It’s important to be aware that working conditions can be hot, sunny, and rustic. Participants need to be proactive, willing to work independently and maintain an open mind - especially while you’re establishing a rapport and routine at the beginning of your program. Interns receive weekly reflection modules to complete during their program - each introduces a new topic, presents learning objectives, and provides specific prompts to inspire the reflective journaling process.Short-term internships provides an introductory experience, however longer participation is encouraged in order to take advantage of the reflective process (up to 12 weeks) and gain greater experience. No grades are directly involved and interns can independently arrange academic credit through their home educational provider.
