Do you love nature and wildlife? Are you looking for work experience in conservation? Are you passionate about making a difference in the world? Then apply to join our team and become a conservation intern!

A conservation internship with the Zante Turtle Center in Zakynthos, Greece is a long term volunteering program, ideally spanning two to seven months. You could focus on sustainable tourism, research, media, habitat conservation, etc dependent on your interests.

As an intern you will be a leader and responsible for managing your own workload. You will be working closely with the staff, the other interns, and volunteers from all over the world. Our internships are a once in a lifetime experience where you will gain a greater understanding of conservation regardless of what area you are working in. This could be a great step towards your career in practical conservation or simply your way of making a lasting one-off contribution to the preservation of endangered species.

Being an intern means that you will get more responsibility than our volunteers. You will supervise volunteers at all times, be a part of a dedicated team, create and manage your own projects and most of all: make a difference.

Our work here is not just a job but a lifestyle. It requires a strong passion for the environment and its wildlife. We require you to be 100% committed and hard working. If you’ve got these qualities, then we’d like to hear from you!

If you’re interested in interning with us for the 2023 season, please apply here.
