Conservation Internship Program

Build your own conservation portfolio when you intern with the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC).

As an NCC conservation intern you’ll build the kind of skills and experiences that care for Canada’s natural heritage while developing your career in conservation.

NCC has a long history of providing practical, paid, career-based training for the advancement of college and university students in the field of conservation and environmental studies. In the past decade alone, NCC has supported more than 350 internships in all 10 provinces, helping NCC to achieve its science and stewardship goals. Equally important, NCC staff mentor the young Canadians who will become tomorrow's conservation leaders.
