Climate Campaign Intern 

About the Organization At the Center for Biological Diversity, we believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature - to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. We do so through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive.

We want those who come after us to inherit a world where the wild is still alive!  

The Center for Biological Diversity’s Climate Law Institute seeks a motivated, creative and experienced intern dedicated to protecting our communities and wildlife from catastrophic climate change.
