I’ve always had an amazing appreciation for wildlife, but after a week in Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, it’s definitely grown. I’m completely amazed by how many species I was able to experience that were at one point on the brink of extinction. While the federal government has done a fantastic job in that particular situation, they’re not able to act in the same way across the world. That’s where organizations like World Wildlife Fund come in. WWF is a Washington, DC non-profit that “has been protecting the future of nature” for the last 50 years. They work in 100 countries and have more than 5 million members across the world. The organization’s vision is “to build a future in which people live in harmony with nature.” That’s a tall task considering our history, but there are certainly signs of hope.

While I still have some ill will towards World Wildlife Fund for the whole WWF trademark dispute (and I don’t even like professional wrestling–check out WWE jobs), I generally like what they’re doing. WWF’s six major areas of focus are Protect Species, Conserve Places, Transform Businesses, Tackle Climate Change, Work with Communities, and Develop Science-based Solutions. What I think is most impressive, though, is that at WWF’s massive size they’re still committing 85% of their expenses towards programming. That makes you think that they have a realistic shot at their goal to “conserve 15 of the world’s most ecologically important regions” by 2020. If you want to help them accomplish that, take a look at World Wildlife Fund’s Internships page. Right now they’re looking for a paid Agriculture Supply Chain Intern and an unpaid Program Communications Intern. They typically have more internships available at certain times of the year, so keep your eyes peeled for future postings.
