Fauna & Flora
Dedicated to protecting wildlife and habitats around the world. 🐘🌱🐠
Hours of Work: This is a full-time position, working 40 hours per week Monday to Friday inclusive. These hours may vary depending on the requirements of the job in the field.
The Internship – Conservation Technology will be with the WILDLABS Programme at Fauna & Flora International, managed by FFI Kenya.
As the facilitator of the recently established East Africa regional conservation technology network, the internship will be tasked to identify knowledge gaps and barriers to conservation tech use, create content and resources to engage and support the conservation tech community, and plan and coordinate a product (such as ‘best practices’ documentation or technology guides) or event (such as networking and knowledge exchange workshops or a virtual lecture series) to facilitate knowledge exchange between regional conservation and technology actors, and the global conservation technology community.
As a result of engaging in these activities, you will work hand-in-hand with key stakeholders in the conservation technology realm, including NGOs, wildlife practitioners, technologists, and donors. You will receive foundational training in community building, fundraising, and communication as well as strengthening your understanding of current and emerging conservation tools. Critically, you will establish yourself as a trusted knowledge and relationship broker about local conservation tech applications and projects, and become a central figure guiding the development of our new East Africa regional conservation technology network.
These baseline activities are essential to developing regional conservation technology centres, creating an invaluable resource for local practitioners looking to further their conservation effect and furthering WILDLABS’ and FFI’s regional and global impact.
