Summer internships at Carlsbad Caverns National Park, USA
We are pleased to announce that Carlsbad Caverns National Park has openings
for two Natural Resource Management interns for summer 2019 through the
and Mosaics in Science internship programs. The interns will assist in
assessing impact to the park's world-class cave resources through impact
mapping, photo monitoring, and more. They will get first-hand experience with
a wide range of resource-related
projects, work with public cave program volunteers, and broaden their skills
through interaction with the numerous researchers conducting studies within
the park. This is a great opportunity to become intimately familiar with an
outstanding caving area and
join a dynamic team that is passionate about protecting cave resources.
We encourage cavers and cave scientists to apply. For more information, see:
