Internship Opening with Tanzania People & Wildlife Women in Conservation
Overview
Tanzania People & Wildlife (TPW) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of wildlife and important natural habitats through a community-driven approach. TPW helps rural communities develop their skills and abilities to protect natural resources in a manner that maximizes their benefits from these landscapes while also preserving ecological integrity. Emphasizing the
critical importance of community-led initiatives, the organization provides information, training and service level support to its rural constituencies to strengthen local institutions and community driven actions for natural resource management and wildlife conservation. TPW operates from the Noloholo Environmental Center on the Maasai Steppe in northern Tanzania. Sharing a boundary with Tarangire National Park, this center acts as TPW’s regional headquarters as well as an educational center where rural community members improve their understanding of the environment and develop hands-on skills in natural resource management. From this center, TPW operates programs in four major programmatic areas: 1) wildlife conservation and human-wildlife conflict prevention, (2) youth environmental education and adult capacity building & training, (3) natural resource conservation and rangeland management, and (4) environmentally-sustainable conservation enterprise and development. TPW values the roles of women in communities and in conservation. Empowering women is a critical component of successful conservation and community development programming, and TPW is committed to amplifying the voices of women in Tanzania. Through our new Women in Conservation Internship Program, TPW will build the capacity of Tanzanian women with a passion for the environment and a desire to make change in their communities. A skills development and mentorship program, this internship will enhance the employ-ability of qualified women in the field and foster a spirit of women’s empowerment in conservation.
