We strive to give interns from various educational institutions the opportunity to make working for Wetlands International a valuable learning experience! The purpose of the internship can be either gaining work experience or a graduate assignment. A mentor is assigned to assure the learning experience and the desired goals of the internship are maximized.
Stefan Verschure, from Utrecht University, conducted a 4-month study into tidal dynamics in a coastal village in Central Java, Indonesia. His presence, discussions and recommendation to build with nature, were important for the local community and the Indonesian Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries.
“During my internship at Wetlands International I looked into the problematic expansion of pulp wood plantations on peatlands and helped develop a strategy on this for which I engaged with other NGOs, the industry and donors to support us. I really enjoyed the challenge!” – Bas Tinhout, MSc Forest and Nature Conservation, Wageningen University
