Wild Forests and Fauna (WildFF) is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and restoring threatened forests through local leadership of community based projects. Over the last three years, this small nonprofit has launched four successful projects in Peru and Uganda.
With the organization’s foundation set and projects initiated, WildFF is ready to enhance its communications strategy and increase its exposure to a wider audience. To this end, WildFF is searching for a proactive and engaging communications intern to support our Future Leaders project team.
Future Leaders is a multiyear youth leadership program that provides aspiring young individuals with skills in sustainable business, innovation, and leadership. Programs are hosted in globally important, endangered forests that have significant opportunities for conservation, currently in the Madre de Dios region of the Peruvian Amazon. We invite local youth (aged 1830) who want to conserve their natural resources and be successful entrepreneurs. In this position, you’ll codevelop and implement a digital communications strategy—including blogs, social media and newsletter content—to educate and inspire the public and prospective donors about the Future Leaders project (currently prepping for its 4th Summit). This is an opportunity to work directly with WildFF’s Communications Team—made up of board members who are currently working in the marketing & communications field—while also gaining firsthand experience working with a young and growing international conservation organization.
