Develop Digital skills for Wildlife Communication

Poaching and illegal wildlife trafficking are at crisis levels, especially in Asia. The rescue centres that we support need urgent help. Hence the Wildlife Communication Internship! There is not only the hands-on work of feeding, enrichment and caring for the animals such as, gibbons, orangutans, sun bears, birds, deer and other rainforest animals.

In addition, we need effective communication to different audiences: potential volunteers or interns, possible donors or school groups and universities. This requires communication skills such as excellent writing or photography and video. Good knowledge of Social Media and creating Digital Content is also very helpful.
