Current Internship Opportunities:

1.  Help Disseminate our STEM Programs

Bear Trust is seeking interns who are experienced with presenting education programs to help us disseminate our free STEM curriculum.  Some interns will present overviews of our STEM curricula to teachers at Teacher Conferences and at other science education venues for teachers.  Some interns may chose to help us reach out to science teachers via email and social media. 

2.  Conservation Messaging via E-newsletters

Bear Trust is seeking an intern who is experienced in writing e-newsletters and other conservation messaging outreach.  We have a lot going on and we need someone to help us communicate our program successes!  E-newsletters will also include timely information about current events around the 8 bear species worldwide.

3.  Bear Basics

Bear Trust is seeking an intern who can help update our Bear Basics pages.  We have 8 Bear Basics pages, one page on each of the 8 bear species.  We need a motivated intern to revise and update each of these 8 pages.  The Bear Basics pages are linked to our Interactive Range Map.
